Setting image mode#
If you attempt to set the mode of an image directly, e.g.
im.mode = "RGBA", you will now receive an
AttributeError. This is
not about removing existing functionality, but instead about raising an
explicit error to prevent later consequences. The
convert method is the
correct way to change an image’s mode.
Accept a list in getpixel()#
getpixel() now accepts a list of coordinates, as well
as a tuple.
from PIL import Image im = Image.new("RGB", (1, 1)) im.getpixel((0, 0)) im.getpixel([0, 0])
BoxBlur and GaussianBlur allow for different x and y radii#
from PIL import ImageFilter ImageFilter.BoxBlur((2, 5)) ImageFilter.GaussianBlur((2, 5))
EpsImagePlugin.gs_windows_binary stores the name of the Ghostscript
executable on Windows.
EpsImagePlugin.gs_binary has now been added for all
platforms, and can be used to customise the name of the executable, or disable
use entirely through
EpsImagePlugin.gs_binary = False.
Images now have
has_transparency_data to indicate
whether the image has transparency data, whether in the form of an alpha
channel, a palette with an alpha channel, or a “transparency” key in the
Even if this attribute is true, the image might still appear solid, if all of the values shown within are opaque.
Returns a resized version of the image, so that the requested size is covered, while maintaining the original aspect ratio.
See Resize relative to a given size for a comparison between this and similar
size and font_size arguments when using default font#
Pillow has had a “better than nothing” default font, which can only be drawn at one font size. Now, if FreeType support is available, a version of Aileron Regular is loaded, which can be drawn at chosen font sizes.
font_size arguments can now be used to specify a
font size for this new builtin font:
ImageFont.load_default(size=24) draw.text((0, 0), "test", font_size=24) draw.textlength((0, 0), "test", font_size=24) draw.textbbox((0, 0), "test", font_size=24) draw.multiline_text((0, 0), "test", font_size=24) draw.multiline_textbbox((0, 0), "test", font_size=24)
Added support for DDS BC5U and 8-bit color indexed images#
Support has been added to read BC5U DDS files as RGB images, and PALETTEINDEXED8 DDS files as P mode images.
Support reading signed 8-bit YCbCr TIFF images#
TIFF images with unsigned integer data, 8 bits per sample and a photometric interpretation of YCbCr can now be read.
