Image Hashing Library with Cache

Project Description

A image hashing library written in Python. ImageHashCache supports:

* average hashing (`aHash`_)
* perception hashing (`pHash`_)
* difference hashing (`dHash`_)
* caching resized images

Based on PIL/Pillow Image, numpy and scipy.fftpack (for pHash)
Easy installation through `pypi`_.

Basic usage

>>> from PIL import Image
>>> import imagehash
>>> hash = imagehash.average_hash('test.png'))
>>> print(hash)
>>> otherhash = imagehash.average_hash('other.bmp'))
>>> print(otherhash)
>>> print(hash == otherhash)
>>> print(hash - otherhash)

The demo script **find_similar_images** illustrates how to find similar images in a directory.
