colorgram.py is a Python library that lets you extract colors from images. Compared to other libraries, the colorgram algorithm's results are more intense.
colorgram.py is a port of
@darosh <https://github.com/darosh>. The goal is to have 100% accuracy to the results of the original library (a goal that is met). I decided to port it since I much prefer the results the colorgram algorithm gets over those of alternative libraries - have a look in the next section.

Time-wise, an extraction of a 512x512 image takes about 0.66s (another popular color extraction library,
Color Thief <https://github.com/fengsp/color-thief-py>__, takes about 1.05s).
You can install colorgram.py with
pip <https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing/>__, as following:
pip install colorgram.py
Using colorgram.py is simple. Mainly there's only one function you'll need to use -
.. code:: python
import colorgram # Extract 6 colors from an image. colors = colorgram.extract('sweet_pic.jpg', 6) # colorgram.extract returns Color objects, which let you access # RGB, HSL, and what proportion of the image was that color. first_color = colors rgb = first_color.rgb # e.g. (255, 151, 210) hsl = first_color.hsl # e.g. (230, 255, 203) proportion = first_color.proportion # e.g. 0.34 # RGB and HSL are named tuples, so values can be accessed as properties. # These all work just as well: red = rgb red = rgb.r saturation = hsl saturation = hsl.s
Extract colors from an image.
image may be either a path to a file, a file-like object, or a Pillow
Image object. The function will return a list of
A color extracted from an image. Its properties are:
Color.rgb- The color represented as a
namedtupleof RGB from 0 to 255, e.g.
(r=255, g=151, b=210).
Color.hsl- The color represented as a
namedtupleof HSL from 0 to 255, e.g.
(h=230, s=255, l=203).
Color.proportion- The proportion of the image that is in the extracted color from 0 to 1, e.g.
Sorting by HSL '''''''''''''' Something the original library lets you do is sort the colors you get by HSL. In actuality, though, the colors are only sorted by hue (as of colorgram.js 0.1.5), while saturation and lightness are ignored. To get the corresponding result in colorgram.py, simply do:
.. code:: python
colors.sort(key=lambda c: c.hsl.h) # or... sorted(colors, key=lambda c: c.hsl.h)
