Color Thief

A Python module for grabbing the color palette from an image.

Installation

$ pip install colorthief

Usage

from colorthief import ColorThief

color_thief = ColorThief('/path/to/imagefile')
# get the dominant color
dominant_color = color_thief.get_color(quality=1)
# build a color palette
palette = color_thief.get_palette(color_count=6)

API

class ColorThief(object):
    def __init__(self, file):
        """Create one color thief for one image.

        :param file: A filename (string) or a file object. The file object
                     must implement `read()`, `seek()`, and `tell()` methods,
                     and be opened in binary mode.
        """
        pass

    def get_color(self, quality=10):
        """Get the dominant color.

        :param quality: quality settings, 1 is the highest quality, the bigger
                        the number, the faster a color will be returned but
                        the greater the likelihood that it will not be the
                        visually most dominant color
        :return tuple: (r, g, b)
        """
        pass

    def get_palette(self, color_count=10, quality=10):
        """Build a color palette.  We are using the median cut algorithm to
        cluster similar colors.

        :param color_count: the size of the palette, max number of colors
        :param quality: quality settings, 1 is the highest quality, the bigger
                        the number, the faster the palette generation, but the
                        greater the likelihood that colors will be missed.
        :return list: a list of tuple in the form (r, g, b)
        """
        pass
