"Powerfull Python Imaging Library"

What do you like best?

Pillow is a fork of PIL. It is very easy to use and powerful at the same time. It is well documented and maintained. Supports both Python 2.7 and 3.

Generally if you need to work with images and do resizing, rotation , cropping or adding watermarks, then it's a good library to start with and will save you a lot of time.

What do you dislike?

It might not work for a very advance image manipulations, but will definitely be a good choice for most of the projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to work with images and do some image manipulation then this library will be a good solution for you.

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

I use it for basic image manipulations like resizing, rotating, cropping images and adding watermarks.

"Best image manipulation software at none to very low cost "

What do you like best?

PIL is the Python imaging library and Pillow is the friendly PIL fork. Pillow allows us to work with, edit, manipulate images easily, dynamically, effectively and efficiently using Python. Scope of image manipulation in Pillow using Python is enormous. It includes resizing images, rotate images, add filters to images, crop images dynamically, modifying colors, changing or removing background colors, adding watermarks, converting to another format of images as and when needed. Best part is simple command like application that can do all complex image manipulation with ease.

What do you dislike?

Didn't find any major issues that may drive me to dislike the product but few minor thinks I don't like (and I am confident that those will be corrected over period of time)

1. There is no option of disable delta frame. Little problem for animated images like gif

2. There are few mine types missing even in latest version

3. Will get system errors on adhoc images. Don't know the reason neither log file says anything that can help to dig into.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It saves tons of our time in image editing and manipulation for different features and functionalities in our image heavy websites. We are also implementing realtime personalization and preference that need automatic conversion of image colors, background colors, borders and size. Pillow is a great help. It's an amazing software that saves tons of time. Highly recommended

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

Our website is contains lots of images. Not only just responsive design of our website need images at differents shapes and sizes, we also need images in different sizes for functionalities like thumbnails, image gallery, personalized image color (based on users preferences), story based images etc. All of those need original image to modify manually and keep different version at different image folder. Not only it needed lots of manual efforts but also dynamically rationalization is impossible with that approach. With Python pillow, develop the script at once and run it automatically as and when needed to produce desired outcome. It saves tons of time in image manipulations and enabled us realtime personalization.

What Python Package solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"description of python pillow"

What do you like best?

python pillow is a python imaging library for better image functionality in python file such as opening, modifying ,manipulating images with the greater scalability and with enhanced functionality.It hass many features such as image filtering which will be hard to filter images manually ,image enhancing and also adding text to image.There are many platforms available for using this software as it is used to edit the feature of the images as much as opencv and other libraries and the installation of this software is also easy as anyone can install it by just typing one command.the supporting library PIL(python image library) adds image processing capabilities to the python interpreter which supports many file formats and provides broad image processing and graphics capabilities.

What do you dislike?

this python pillow works on python image library which does not support below 2.1.0, and also the documentation is not easy to understand as there are many supportive features and dependencies are available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

i recommend this software to those who are working in image processing because this software decrease load upto 40 % than any other utilisation of library.

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

i am currently making image comparator for that i am using open cv but with the enhanced features of python pillow it gives me relief on the load taken by other libraries.

"Best image to numpy array reader"

What do you like best?

Pillow is a very good python library for reading images in the form of numpy arrays which can be used for further image manipulation.Using that bumpy array you can perform image recognition and image processing stuffs on images.It also allows numpy array to be stored as image which can be done after processing the image in the form of numpy array.

What do you dislike?

No it is a very good library for python for reading photos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendations considering pillow is that it is the best library for working with images in python because using single line of code you can read images into numpy arrays for further processing and also you can save that processed array back to image.It is really a very good library to consider.

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

I am using pillow for python to read images into numpy array because at our company I get many projects of image processing and also many machine learning algorithms are to be ran on raw images.For that we need to cover images into numpy arrays processing.This is why I use pillow.

"Even beginners can learn how to use Pillow"

What do you like best?

Well documented, lots of tutorials online, ease in applying effects and changes as crop, watermarking, flip, rotate in multiple images and fast.

What do you dislike?

For now nothing. I still have difficulty with some of the functions, but this is because I'm still learning how to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're searching for a tool that let you work with multiple images with ease, I recommend learning Pillow. At first, it seems this tool is only used for large projects and is intimidating at first, but Pillow works perfectly with small projects too.

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

I use to apply effects, watermark multiple images and to crop and resize images downloaded using the requests library; it's handier using Pillow when some of the photos are on a grid.

I really have not found any feature shortcoming during the 4 months I have been using the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have extensive image archives/libraries this is the product that will solve many of your bottlenecks

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

Utilizing optimum efficiency with our image libraries in our website desing projects is my number one "like" for this product.
