imageio 0.5.1

Library for reading and writing a wide range of image formats.

Latest Version: 2.3.0

The imageio library aims to support reading and writing a wide range of image data, including animated images, volumetric data, and scientific formats. It is written in pure Python (2.x and 3.x) and is designed to be powerful, yet simple in usage and installation.

Imageio has a relatively simple core that provides a common interface to different file formats. The actual file formats are implemented in plugins, which makes imageio easy to extend. A large range of formats are already supported (in part thanks to the freeimage library), but we aim to include much more (scientific) formats in the future.


  • Use imageio.imread to read an image.
  • Use imageio.imsave to save an image.
  • See the functions page for more information.
