A web page dedicated to image processing with Python.
Hello, my name is Riccardo Trocca, a freshly graduated engineer from University
of Genoa (Italy).
This web page will be dedicated to whatever you can use to do image processing
with that wonderful language called Python (www.python.org).
By now I have no time to create a decent homepage, therefore you should be
content with these few lines.
The first tool you need to do image processing on Python is the PythonWare
PIL library (www.pythonware.com).
Unfortunately, there is no version 1.1.3 precompiled for python 2.2 on win32.
Well, I decided to compile it by myself and put on this website a copy of
the installer. Beware, however, that this build is not fully tested,
I've just tried it with the test suite provided with PIL itsef and some of
the scripts in the Scripts folder of the PIL distribution. My advice is that
you install my version and then start toying with the examples included in
the source distribution you find on the PythonWare website.
Another disclaimer and then I'm done:
I have some doubt about TIFF handling. The tifflib library is a little bit
hard to build and I discovered that I've used an old version (3.4) instead
of the newest (3.5.7). I'll fix this soon.
In the future I should post some module that I'm working on (just allow me
the time to develop a clean distro) that allows Python to open AVI files
and QuickTime files in order to extract single frames from them. I've also
developed another module to grab pictures from a framegrabber that supports
DirectShow. There is already one, called VideoCapture that you can find at
I created another one because VideoCapture went on crashing on my PC with
a Philips webcam and also required a working copy of PIL for python 2.2,
that, till now, I did not have.
Ok, enough blah blah, here is the..
it is a graphical installer for PIL 1.1.3 for Python 2.2 (win32) created
with DistUtils. (08/09/2002)
