crop and resize an image without doing the math yourself

Project Description

cropresize uses PIL to crop and resize an image as appropriate for web presentation. cropresize is a convenience package that allows image resizing without aspect ratio distortion.


cropresize contains one useful function, cropresize.crop_resize. The function takes three arguments:

  • image: a PIL image object
  • size: a 2-tuple of (width,height); at least one must be specified
  • exact_size: whether to scale up for smaller images

See cropresize.crop_resize.__doc__ for the function documentation. crop_resize returns the cropped and resized PIL image.

Command Line

The command line program, crop-resize, is included in this python package. The help for the program is displayed by running crop-resize with no arguments or crop-resize --help.

Future Work

cropresize is written as a convenience function to PIL as this methodology for cropping and resizing images is often desired for presentation, particularly on the web. Since the utility is in demand, the functionality should be ported upstream to PIL.
