Pygame is a cross-platform set of Python modules designed for writing video games. It includes computer graphics and sound libraries designed to be used with the Python programming language. Now, it’s up to the imagination or necessity of the developer, what type of game he/she wants to develop using this toolkit.

Command to install pygame :

pip install pygame

How to display images with PyGame ?

There are four basic steps to displaying images on the pygame window :

  • Create a display surface object using display.set_mode() method of pygame.
  • Create a Image surface object i.e. surface object in which image is drawn on it, using image.load() method of pygame.
  • Copy the image surface object to the display surface object using blit() method of pygame display surface object.
  • Show the display surface object on the pygame window using display.update() method of pygame.

Display images using PyGame

Here we are first importing the required library and then setting the width and height of the image then creating the display surface for that size then give the path of the required image in then image.load() function and then finally iterate over the list of event objects.

Python3




# importing required library
import pygame
 
# activate the pygame library .
pygame.init()
X = 600
Y = 600
 
# create the display surface object
# of specific dimension..e(X, Y).
scrn = pygame.display.set_mode((X, Y))
 
# set the pygame window name
pygame.display.set_caption('image')
 
# create a surface object, image is drawn on it.
imp = pygame.image.load("C:\\Users\\DELL\\Downloads\\gfg.png").convert()
 
# Using blit to copy content from one surface to other
scrn.blit(imp, (0, 0))
 
# paint screen one time
pygame.display.flip()
status = True
while (status):
 
  # iterate over the list of Event objects
  # that was returned by pygame.event.get() method.
    for i in pygame.event.get():
 
        # if event object type is QUIT
        # then quitting the pygame
        # and program both.
        if i.type == pygame.QUIT:
            status = False
 
# deactivates the pygame library
pygame.quit()


Output:
