JPEG2000-PIL JPEG 2000 (ISO 15444)ΒΆ

Extensions: .jp2, .j2k, .jpc, .jpf, .jpx, .j2c

This is a copy from the Pillow docs.

New in version Pillow: 2.4.0

PIL reads and writes JPEG 2000 files containing L, LA, RGB or RGBA data. It can also read files containing YCbCr data, which it converts on read into RGB or RGBA depending on whether or not there is an alpha channel. PIL supports JPEG 2000 raw codestreams (.j2k files), as well as boxed JPEG 2000 files (.j2p or .jpx files). PIL does not support files whose components have different sampling frequencies.

When loading, if you set the mode on the image prior to the load() method being invoked, you can ask PIL to convert the image to either RGB or RGBA rather than choosing for itself. It is also possible to set reduce to the number of resolutions to discard (each one reduces the size of the resulting image by a factor of 2), and layers to specify the number of quality layers to load.

The save() method supports the following options:

offset
The image offset, as a tuple of integers, e.g. (16, 16)
tile_offset
The tile offset, again as a 2-tuple of integers.
tile_size
The tile size as a 2-tuple. If not specified, or if set to None, the image will be saved without tiling.
quality_mode
Either “rates” or “dB” depending on the units you want to use to specify image quality.
quality_layers
A sequence of numbers, each of which represents either an approximate size reduction (if quality mode is “rates”) or a signal to noise ratio value in decibels. If not specified, defaults to a single layer of full quality.
num_resolutions
The number of different image resolutions to be stored (which corresponds to the number of Discrete Wavelet Transform decompositions plus one).
codeblock_size
The code-block size as a 2-tuple. Minimum size is 4 x 4, maximum is 1024 x 1024, with the additional restriction that no code-block may have more than 4096 coefficients (i.e. the product of the two numbers must be no greater than 4096).
precinct_size
The precinct size as a 2-tuple. Must be a power of two along both axes, and must be greater than the code-block size.
irreversible
If True, use the lossy Irreversible Color Transformation followed by DWT 9-7. Defaults to False, which means to use the Reversible Color Transformation with DWT 5-3.
progression
Controls the progression order; must be one of "LRCP", "RLCP", "RPCL", "PCRL", "CPRL". The letters stand for Component, Position, Resolution and Layer respectively and control the order of encoding, the idea being that e.g. an image encoded using LRCP mode can have its quality layers decoded as they arrive at the decoder, while one encoded using RLCP mode will have increasing resolutions decoded as they arrive, and so on.
cinema_mode
Set the encoder to produce output compliant with the digital cinema specifications. The options here are "no" (the default), "cinema2k-24" for 24fps 2K, "cinema2k-48" for 48fps 2K, and "cinema4k-24" for 24fps 4K. Note that for compliant 2K files, at least one of your image dimensions must match 2048 x 1080, while for compliant 4K files, at least one of the dimensions must match 4096 x 2160.

Note

To enable JPEG 2000 support, you need to build and install the OpenJPEG library, version 2.0.0 or higher, before building the Python Imaging Library.

Windows users can install the OpenJPEG binaries available on the OpenJPEG website, but must add them to their PATH in order to use PIL (if you fail to do this, you will get errors about not being able to load the _imaging DLL).
