Traceback (most recent call last):
File "t.py", line 12, in
File "/.../lib/python2.7/site-packages/PIL/ImageFile.py", line 383, in feed
if flag or len(im.tile) != 1:
TypeError: object of type 'NoneType' has no len()

from PIL import ImageFile
data = open('favicon.ico', 'rb').read()
p = ImageFile.Parser()

I found when excute im = im.convert('RGBA') in function frame() of IcoImagePlugin.py file, im.tile will lose and turn to NoneType.

Does it work if you just read the file directly?

from PIL import Image
im = Image.open('favicon.ico')
im = im.convert('RGBA')

The parser class isn't always quite as robust as just simply opening and reading the file.

regod commented Feb 14, 2014

It works, but im.tile is still None. So in feed function when checking condition len(im.tile) != 1, the exception will also raise. I guess it is better to set im.tile's value an empty list instead of None.

Can you post the .ico file so I can take a look?

regod commented Feb 17, 2014

github editor can't support ico file, so i give a link the ico file i use.

Works for me:

(vpy27)erics:~/Pillow/Images$ python
Python 2.7.5+ (default, Sep 19 2013, 13:49:51) 
[GCC 4.8.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from PIL import Image
>>> im = Image.open('python.ico')
>>> im.load()
>>> im.size
(48, 48)
>>> im.convert('RGBA')
<PIL.Image.Image image mode=RGBA size=48x48 at 0x955550C>

What Pillow are you running?

[[edit]] I see, you're still running the ImageFile.Parser class. Is there a reason that you're doing that instead of just opening directly?

That happens when I use django which is used ImageFile.Parser class in core/files/images.py.


wiredfool commented Feb 18, 2014

Ah. Django. Try the commit up there, it should patch it so that ico files work with the parser module.
