Average pixels from multiple images off Bing Image Search

Project description

# Average Pixels [![Build Status](](

Command line tool which takes a bunch of images, and outputs a JPEG combining the images using a weighted average where the weights are samples drawn from the Dirichlet distribution.

`sh $ average-pixels download "party explosions boom" --offset 90 --count 30 `


## Installation

`sh $ python3 -m pip install average-pixels `

## Configuration The application in download mode uses [Bing Search API]( to search for images so it requires the user to have an API key activated for Bing’s search service. To obtain one:

Once obtained, the key may be provided through various methods:

  • When prompted by the application
  • By storing it in ~/.average_pixels_api
  • Or via the AVERAGE_PIXELS_API environment variable (e.g. $ export AVERAGE_PIXELS_API=$key)

## Example usage:

The application has 2 modes:

  • local: Combines local files and outputs the combined image
  • download: Takes keywords from the user, and combines images from Bing Image Search
