In this article we review last week's Image Manipulation With Pillow code challenge. Some nice submissions to share ...
bbelderbos created PyBites Banner Generator to create quick but nice banners for PyBites pillars Articles / Challenges / News / Special:
Using Gimp to make banners manually is cumbersome to say the least. Why not semi-automate it? Now it takes seconds to make a PyBites banner and I got enough material out of it to write two articles on Pillow and Flask. You can checkout the first one here, the second one will come out somewhere this week ...
See the README for full details and examples.
clamytoe created Thumbler - a proof of concept script that extracts faces as thumbnails from an image:
I started out wanting to use some sort of machine learning to detect faces in images, but I got sick and had to settle for a quick OpenCV implementation. At first I was going to try and group the extracted faces into their own folder, but since I ran out of time, I just grouped them by image.
Awesome work. See the README for full details and examples.
As there is no deadline to these challenges, we will update here when we get more cool submissions for this challenge ...
Just follow our instructions and start coding!
Stay tuned for our next challenge tomorrow ...
