Python replacement for PHP's imagecreatefromstring [ edit | history ]
Image.fromstring(mode, size, data) => image

Creates an image memory from pixel data in a string, using the standard "raw" decoder.

Image.fromstring(mode, size, data, decoder, parameters) => image

Same, but allows you to use any pixel decoder supported by PIL. For more information on available decoders, see the section Writing Your Own File Decoder.

Note that this function decodes pixel data, not entire images. If you have an entire image file in a string, wrap it in a StringIO object, and use open to load it.

Image.fromstring(data) => image
