This is a quick workaround for people who are using easy_install to install Python Imaging Library on Windows. Many people faced issues while doing this. I found a simple workaround for this.
You must have tried the following
C:> easy_install PIL Searching for PIL ... Finished processing dependencies for PIL C:> python Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Feb 21 2008, 13:11:45) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import Image Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> ImportError: No module named Image
Now you will need to go to your site-packages directory (typically at C:\Python\Lib\site-packages) and change one line that starts with
./PIL-1.1.6-py2.5-win32.egg to simply
./PIL and change the sub-directory named similarly to
Now your imports should work :smile:
