Python PIL | ImageOps.expand() method
  • Last Updated : 03 Jul, 2019

PIL is the Python Imaging Library which provides the python interpreter with image editing capabilities. the ImageOps module contains a number of ‘ready-made’ image processing operations. This module is somewhat experimental, and most operators only work on L and RGB images.

ImageOps.expand() adds a border to the imaage upon which this function is called or used.

Syntax: PIL.ImageOps.expand(image, border = 0, fill = 0)

image : The image to size and crop.
border : The border to be applied to the image in pixels.
fill: This defines the pixel fill value or color value to be applied. The default value is 0 which means the color is black.

Returns: An image with the required border.

Below is the implementation of ImageOps.expand()

Image used:

# Importing Image and ImageOps module from PIL package 
from PIL import Image, ImageOps 
# creating a image1 object 
im1 ="C:\Users\System-Pc\Desktop\a.jpg"
# applying expand method
# using border value = 20
# using fill = 50 which is brown type color
im2 = ImageOps.expand(im1, border = 20, fill = 50
