Pillow provides several modules that provide simple "recipe" methods to do simple image manipulations in a single call:

  • The ImageOps module provides simple ways to do things like cropping, padding, flipping, and a few basic colour operations such as solarize and posterize.
  • The ImageEnhance module can be used to adjust colour, contrast, brightness and sharpness.

The Image module itself also provides some basic image manipulation methods, described here.
