Python lib to read width and height of image files

Project Description


A pure Python library for reading the width and height of images.


`pip install dimensions`



For a single image:

> dimensions src/sample.png
width: 405
height: 239
content_type: image/png

Wildcards also work (escape \* in markdown for PyPi RST...):

> dimensions src/\*.png
width: 405
height: 239
content_type: image/png
width: 473
height: 469
content_type: image/png

As always, full details are available via `dimensions -h`.

In Python code, simply call `dimensions.dimensions`. If you provide a
sequence of filenames, you get back a sequence of tuples; if you provide
just a single filename, you get back a single tuple.

import dimensions
dims = dimensions.dimensions('./src/sample.png')
# (405, 239, 'image/png', './src/sample.png')
