[PYTHON IMAGE-SIG] The Official Image SIG Resource List
Tue, 3 Sep 1996 22:06:34 +0200
Since there's quite a few newcomers lurking around in here, I just
decided to make this a bi-weekly publication.
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, Tkinter display support,
a few utilities, and documentation.
I hope to be able to release 0.2(b1) during this month (so much
to do, so little time). It adds display support for PythonWin,
more formats, enhanced graphics support, an improved interface
to numerical Python, and a few more things.
* 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. This library is rumoured to be included
in the latest Python for Mac releases.
* 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.
