[PYTHON IMAGE-SIG] lurker question
Mon, 12 Aug 1996 01:49:17 GMT
I've been lurking on-and-off here for a while mainly out of curiosity.
Now it's time to actually see if I can make use of the imaging software.
My intended application involves using 3 10-bit (8-bit if necessary)
greyscale images, interactively applying some hysteresis (and occasionally
some other modifications) and using those as the R, G and B channels for a
24-bit colour image. The greyscale images can be quite large - around 2Mb
Specifically, we've got meteorological satellite data coming in and we
use 1 or 2 infrared channels and the visible channel to fake a colour
picture. Given that we're not working with true RGB channels, it can take
quite a lot of interactive fiddling to get a suitably realistic colour
Has anyone done anything like this? Is it possible with PIL in its
current state (I have a feeling that the answer is no)? If not, are there
any ideas when it will be possible?
Getting something like this going in Python will help its acceptance here
incredibly - escpecially if the `application' (python code) is small (fast
would be good too).
