"Best image manipulation framework pillow"

What do you like best?

Most image processing and manipulation technique can be carried out effectively by PIL.

Fork PIL called pillow allows us to do any kind of function with the images that we can do

in any photo shop software manually do with the images. But here, we do inside a program.

What do you dislike?

There are few mine types missing also in the latest version. It does not allow with to do task with the GIFs.

Otherwise, there is not any major issue that I dislike the product or not using. But above are the minor issues which I personally don’t like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Image related terms and some knowledge can help ease of using this product for your project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benefit that I observed is, reduce our team’s time to accomplish any assigned project. Because, first if any changes is needed in images regarding its size, rotation, etc. we have to do manually. But now pillow is doing.

"La mejor libreria de python para tratamiento de imágenes"

What do you like best?

Es muy eficiente, me ha gustado mucho esta libreria, cuando la he usado para calcular el color dominante de una imagen, para así trabajar en un ambilight. Es muy facil de usar y los metodos que ofrece son muy intuitivos y muy optimizados. Tambien me ha permitido seccionar la imagen, dividiendola en distintos secciones para sacar el color dominante de cada una de las seccion, siemrpe de forma muy eficiente y bien optimizada.

What do you dislike?

No tiene una buena compatibilidad con openCV, he tenido que codificar mucho para poder juntar estas dos librerias y asi hace un procesamiento de imagenes óptimo integrando varios algoritmos que deberia ofrecer la propia libreria PIL. La libreria deberia tener mas métodos que se utilizan en tecnicas y algoritmos de procesamiento de imagen, por ejemplo el color dominante, escala de grises, invertir colores etc..

Además de los apartados anteriores, la documentacion oficial se debe mejorar, poniendo mas ejemplos practicos y exponiendo mejor la API para nuevos usuarios.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si necesitas hacer procesamiento de imagenes en Python para cualquier tema, sea deep learning, mejor de imagen etc...No hay otra libreria mejor que esta, intuitiva y muy bien optimizada.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ambilight, calculando el color predominante en cada seccion de la imagen. Tambien la he usado para temas de deep learning, pero muy por encima. Me ah facilitado bastente el seccioanr la imagen en otras imagenes mas pequeñas siempre con muy buenos resultado optimizados incluso con una resolucion 2k (1440p)

"Required tool for image processing"

What do you like best?

Pil or pillow is a package in python specifically used to read images into numpy array and manipulate the image as required.It can be used for various purposes like reshaping the image or cropping the sides.As well as various computer vision approaches like histogram analysis,b/w conversion can be applied on any image using pillow.In short it is one utility package for computer vision.

What do you dislike?

Nope it is one of the required Utility package for python especially for image processing and computer vision.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes I would say that pillow is an utility package which can be used to perform various operations on image in the form of numpy array.Due to so many functionalities it provide as well as lite in weight package,I recommend you to use pillow for mainly preprocessing of images.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am Machine learning engineer and have expertise in CNN so when ever I like to preprocess images to be used in any CNN architecture I prefer using pillow because it works well on server and is lite weight as well as performs all the required operations, so I prefer using pillow.

"Read Images into numpy array easily"

What do you like best?

Pillow for python is a very good library to consider for reading images into array and that too numpy array so that it is easy to manipulate and deal with image data.The way in which it reads the image is so robust that the image can be read much faster.It also allows you to save the numpy array back to image through its own function which is also a good feature and you can manipulate images through this single library and save the image also.

What do you dislike?

It does require some more features but at current stage it is cool to have it read the images.If it adds some more image processing features than it would be a very good addon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good library for dealing faster with image data and process it and save the array back to the image very easily.This library is open-source as very as very lite and so it can be easily used with your application and will not add any load to it.This is why I recommend using pillow for image reading and writing in production.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At our company we require to work on image processing and computer vision based applications and for that we have to deal with bunch of image data and for that no other library is as good as pillow to read and write the images.I have used it for a long period till now and have found it to be a very useful library for computer vision.

"Python library to generate images for financial workflow"

What do you like best?

Python pillow, or the imaging library, is a great way to turn raw data from whatever source you work on into a great stream of usefulness when I need to generate invoices or other data that is necessary for my job.

What do you dislike?

Pillow is an open source library so it is sometimes hard to know exactly what I'm doing unless I use stackoverflow or google to find out how to do a certain task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This python pillow package is great if you have a team of engineers who can read and figure out what's going on in the nitty gritty details of the software. It's free to use and cost is on you to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Python Pillow imaging library allows me to at a low cost, take data and save it into an image that can be sent out to both customers and used internally.

I love the ease of Pillow Python for my business needs. We utilize the resource pretty regularly given that our website and consumer platforms need to be regularly changed depending on the season. This platform provides as an easy way to make changes without sacrificing any information.

"Pillow Python goes beyond the standard PIL library"

What do you like best?

Pillow python is simply better PIL. We import it as PIL (as a drop in replacement). Whats great is that it supports more image formats and is more efficient.

What do you dislike?

Its an improvement on the standard PIL, so there is not much to complain about. Hoping to see this replace PIL completely as the default.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Pillow instead of PIL, it will soon be the default. So, makes you future proof.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Image processing for the backend systems for the user uploaded images to the webserver.
