Get Pattern From an Image in PIL Python
Two days ago I needed to generate a PIL image that is made up from repeating a pattern – another PIL image – multiple times, I didn’t find a code online to do it so I just wrote this small code to do it, thought might share it to help somebody out there.
def get_pattern_from_image(file_name, pattern_width, pattern_height): import Image pattern_image = Image.open(file_name, 'r') result_image = Image.new('RGB', (pattern_width, pattern_height)) x = 0 while x < pattern_width: y = 0 while y < pattern_height: result_image.paste(pattern_image, (x, y)) y += pattern_image.size x += pattern_image.size return result_image
It’s a very simple solution which uses the Image.paste method to repeat the pattern.
