Release notes:


>>> import imageio

>>> im.shape  # im is a numpy array
(512, 512, 3)
>>> imageio.imwrite('astronaut-gray.jpg', im[:, :, 0])

See the user API or examples for more information.

All distribution files are independent of the Python version. The platform-specific archives contain a few images and the freeimage library for that platform. These are recommended if you do not want to rely on an internet connection at runtime / install-time.
