ImageQt Module#

The ImageQt module contains support for creating PyQt6, PySide6, PyQt5 or PySide2 QImage objects from PIL images.

Qt 5 reached end-of-life on 2020-12-08 for open-source users (and will reach EOL on 2023-12-08 for commercial licence holders).

Support for PyQt5 and PySide2 has been deprecated from ImageQt and will be removed in Pillow 10 (2023-07-01). Upgrade to PyQt6 or PySide6 instead.

New in version 1.1.6.

class PIL.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 PyQt6/PySide6/PyQt5/PySide2 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.
