View Full Version : Photo editing with python.

July 27th, 2009, 02:37 AM

I have an idea for a neato cryptography script but I need to find a module that handles pictures first.

The idea would be to convert a photo greyscale first. And since all colors are callable by a hex code, go through the list of colors in sequence and remove the corresponding colors to encode a binary data sequence.

Then, by reading the sequence of present and non-present colors, glean said data from the picture.

The problem is I don't know of a module that is able to handle photo manipulation in such a manner and consequently am not able to even start scripting.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

EDIT: As soon as I posted this I found what I was looking for. Ha. Python Imaging Library. Sorry to post too hastily. Searched for the wrong thing.

PIL (python imaging library) should be perfect.

sorry for missing your edit
