Python Imaging Library (Pillow fork)


This library can be used for encoding and decoding the following formats:

  • png 24/32 bit colour
  • png/L grayscale
  • png/P palette subsampled colour
  • jpeg
  • webp (see also: wiki/Encodings/webp)

Pillow vs PIL

Since the original PIL project has not been updated since 2009, we very strongly recommend that you install the Pillow fork instead (Pillow is the "friendly" PIL fork by Alex Clark and Contributors)
