[Image-SIG] PIL 1.0 palette
Thu, 30 Dec 1999 13:29:31 -0500 (EST)
I've gotten up to speed so far to do everything I want (make pie charts)
with PIL. Yay!
However, my charts are very drab from using the default palette for mode
"P" (I am writing GIFs).
I have read through the PIL 1.0 handbook and cannot figure out how to
change my palette properly.
If I do:
im = Image.new("P", (ImageWidth, ImageHeight))
im.palette = ImagePalette.ImagePalette("RGB")
File "/jblaine/mylocal/lib/python15/Image.py", line 375, in load
if self.im and self.palette and self.palette.rawmode:
and aside from that, I can't figure out how to just get a "simple"
"rainbow" palette (wow, I'm pretty imaging-lingo savvy, eh?).
Maybe I can kill 2 birds with one stone here and also mention that I
want "Black" to be transparent in my output images."
Anyone have any pointers or code I can look at? PIL comes with no
demos that perform ImageDraw.* things that I can find.
Thanks for your time
