PIL is the Python Imaging Library which provides the python interpreter with image editing capabilities. The Image module provides a class with the same name which is used to represent a PIL image. The module also provides a number of factory functions, including functions to load images from files, and to create new images. getcolors() Returns a list of colors used in this image.
Syntax: Image.getcolors(maxcolors=256) Parameters: maxcolors – Maximum number of colors. If this number is exceeded, this method returns None. The default limit is 256 colors. Returns: An unsorted list of (count, pixel) values.
Image Used:
   
  
# importing Image module from PIL package 
from PIL import Image 
  
# opening a  image 
im = Image.open(r"C:\Users\System-Pc\Desktop\lion.png").convert("L"
  
# getting colors 
# multiband images (RBG) 
im1 = Image.Image.getcolors(im) 
  
print(im1) 

                    
Output:
[(38510, 0), (27, 12), (17, 21), (2, 24), (34, 26), (46, 39), (30, 41), (18, 48), (42, 50), (58, 62), (27, 67), (37, 73), (51, 79), (46, 85), (57, 90), (58, 101), (21, 104), (41, 111), (30, 117), (48, 123), (50, 130), (42, 135), (60, 143), (63, 149), (63, 155), (49, 162), (25, 165), (65, 169), (58, 178), (67, 184), (61, 193), (61, 195), (65, 204), (61, 208), (61, 215), (50, 221), (59, 225), (49, 232), (81, 235), (80, 244), (56, 247), (64, 252), (9835, 255)]
Another Example:Here changing image. Image Used:
   
  
# importing Image module from PIL package 
from PIL import Image 
  
# opening a  image 
im = Image.open(r"C:\Users\System-Pc\Desktop\new.jpg").convert("L"
  
# getting colors 
# multiband images (RBG) 
im1 = Image.Image.getcolors(im) 
  
print(im1)
