PIL is the Python Image Library. It was deprecated some time ago and Pillow is the successor. Neither package is part of Python’s standard library.
pillow is not installed and you are running a Task that requires it, DropPy will show an error:
And the log file will show this:
pillow Python package to get the Task working.
pillow is a very common package and therefor useful to have available globally we use
sudo for installation. Run the following command in your Terminal:
sudo pip install pillow
If this worked you’re already done. If you get an error install pip first.
In a shell the following command should run without displaying an error:
python -c "from PIL import Image"
If you get no output everything is ok.
If you get the following output
pillow is not installed:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> ImportError: No module named PIL
Just for the sake of completeness.
pillow (and its dependency
olefile) can again be removed with:
sudo pip uninstall pillow olefile
