The single line that I am trying to run is the following:
from PIL import Image
However simple this may seem, it gives an error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:...2014-10-22_12-49.py", line 1, in <module> from PIL import Image File "C:pyzo2014alibsite-packagesPILImage.py", line 29, in <module> from PIL import VERSION, PILLOW_VERSION, _plugins ImportError: cannot import name 'VERSION'
In case that’s helpful, I installed pillow from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Pillow/2.6.1 (file
Pillow-2.6.1.win-amd64-py3.4.exe) before running this (before that there was already som
PIL install, which I uninstalled). The script is run in Pyzo with Python version 3.4.1.
What is going wrong, how can I import
I had the same error. Here was my workflow. I first installed PIL (not Pillow) using
pip install --no-index -f https://dist.plone.org/thirdparty/ -U PIL
Then I found Pillow and installed it using
pip install Pillow
What fixed my issues was uninstalling both and reinstalling Pillow
pip uninstall PIL pip uninstall Pillow pip install Pillow
I had the same issue, and did this to fix it:
In command prompt
pip install Pillow ##
Ensure that you use
from PIL import Image
Image has to be capital. That was the issue in my case.
FWIW, the following worked for me when I had this same error:
pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall pillow
If you use
Anaconda, you may try:
conda install Pillow
All the answers were great however what did it for me was a combination of uninstalling Pillow
pip uninstall Pillow
Then installing whatever packages you need e.g.
sudo apt-get -y install python-imaging sudo apt-get -y install zlib1g-dev sudo apt-get -y install libjpeg-dev
And then using easy_install to reinstall Pillow
Hope this helps others
For me, I had typed image with a lower case “i” instead of Image. So I did:
from PIL import Image NOT
from PIL import image
The current free version is PIL 1.1.7. This release supports Python 1.5.2 and newer, including 2.5 and 2.6. A version for 3.X will be released later.
Your python version is 3.4.1, PIL do not support!
In Ubuntu OS, I solved it with the followings commands
pip install Pillow apt-get install python-imaging
And sorry, dont ask me why, it’s up to me 😉
