The Official Image SIG Resource List
Here's some pointers to stuff related to this group:
* The Python Imaging Library (by Fredrik Lundh)
PIL adds an Image object to the Python interpreter. The current
release (0.1b1) reads and writes various image file formats,
provides cut/paste, colour conversion, resize, rotate and
arbitrary affine transforms, channel and point operations,
simple graphics, PostScript printing, a Tk interface, a few
utilities, and documentation.
Release 0.2(b1) will be released later this month. It adds
display support for PythonWin, more formats, enhanced graphics
support, an improved Matrix interface, and more.
* The IMG library (by Jack Jansen)
Reads and writes a variety of file formats, and displays
images on X and Mac systems. An interface to the Imaging
Library is available.
* The GD library (by Richard Jones)
'It allows your code to quickly draw images complete with lines,
arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from other images, and
flood fills, and write out the result as a .GIF file. This is
particularly useful in World Wide Web applications, where .GIF
is the format used for inline images.'
Also check out Richard's really cool HTTP statistics tool, which
uses gd to create diagrams.
* The Python Khoros Interface Module (by Raymond Suorsa)
The PKIM interface provides a Python interface to the Khoros
image processing library.
Note that this module is no longer being maintained. The most
recent release was tested with Python 1.2 and Khoros2.0.2+p2DR.
