imread: Image reading library

Project description

Simple module with a small number of functions:

imread
Reads an image file
imread_multi
Reads an image file with multiple images. Currently, TIFF and STK (a TIFF sub-based format) support this function.
imsave
Writes an image file

This grew out of frustration at current image loading solutions in Python, in either my packages [mahotas] or packages from others [scikits.image, for example].

The relationship with numpy is very contained and this could be easily repurposed to load images in other frameworks, even other programming languages.

Dependencies

To install on debian/ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install libpng12-dev libtiff4-dev libwebp-dev

To install on Mac:

sudo port install libpng tiff webp

Bug Reports

Please report any bugs either on github or by email to luis@luispedro.org

If you are not sure of whether this is the correct behaviour, you can discuss this on the pythonvision mailing list

If at all possible, include a small image as a test case.
