In this video, the author demonstrates how to manipulate images using the Pillow library. Learn about loading, resizing, deforming, tinting, merging, and displaying images.
- [Instructor] The web is all about visual impact,…but even scientific and engineering applications…often require handling, analyzing…and modifying images…encoded in many different formats.…A powerful, reliable library to do so,…is a must.…There once was such a library.…The beloved Python Imaging Library,…developed by a Swedish software company.…Unfortunately, development was halted in 2009.…Esures red flag,…as we discussed in the introduction to this chapter.…
Luckily, the library was resurrected…as the pillow project,…which is once again maintained…and developed vigorously.…That's what we'll use in this video,…to manipulate our images from Mars.…What we do, we'll give you only a slight taste…of what's possible with Pillow.…See the documentation for a lot more.…First, we actually need to download an image.…And, of course, we'll use requests.…Let me also import all the packages…used in this chapter.…And set the URL for the image of the Mars landscape…that we found in the last video.…
So we download with requests.…This is binary data.…
