PIL library

I need some help… i have tried to download the Python Image Library, but whenever i go to install it, the installer works up until i actually click “start”…
then it just stops responding, and doesnt even get to the loading bar…

i was wondering if there was another way to download the python image library… perhaps a different installer file, or something…

any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like:
1 problem with your PIL download
2 problem with your python setup

Did you just install panda3d? Or did you install some other python and then panda3d? Is the pil the right version for your panda3d (most likely python2.5) ?

Oh just as a side node, Panda3d PNMImage library provides about 60% of what you get out of PIL, maybe just use that?

Check the last post out in this thread https://discourse.panda3d.org/viewtopic.php?t=3727&highlight=pil

I got PIL to work with panda python by installing PIL into the panda python directory. If you have Python installed on your computer PIL might default install to there instead.

After installing you should have the full functionality of PIL.
