Default resampling filter for special image modes¶
Pillow 7.0 changed the default resampling filter to
Image.BICUBIC. However, as this
is not supported yet for images with a custom number of bits, the default filter for
those modes has been reverted to
Returns a resized version of the image, set to the maximum width and height within
size, while maintaining the original aspect ratio.
To compare it to other ImageOps methods:
fit()expands an image until is fills
size, cropping the parts of the image that do not fit.
pad()expands an image to fill
size, without cropping, but instead filling the extra space with
contain()is similar to
pad(), but it does not fill the extra space. Instead, the original aspect ratio is maintained. So unlike the other two methods, it is not guaranteed to return an image of
