ImageQt Module

The ImageQt module contains support for creating PyQt4, PyQt5, PySide or PySide2 QImage objects from PIL images.

Qt 4 reached end-of-life on 2015-12-19. Its Python bindings are also EOL: PyQt4 since 2018-08-31 and PySide since 2015-10-14.

Support for PyQt4 and PySide is deprecated since Pillow 6.0.0 and will be removed in a future version. Please upgrade to PyQt5 or PySide2.

New in version 1.1.6.

class ImageQt.ImageQt(image)

Creates an ImageQt object from a PIL Image object. This class is a subclass of QtGui.QImage, which means that you can pass the resulting objects directly to PyQt4/PyQt5/PySide API functions and methods.

This operation is currently supported for mode 1, L, P, RGB, and RGBA images. To handle other modes, you need to convert the image first.
