Images

Widgets such as Picture and PushButton allow you to use images in your GUI.

from guizero import App, Picture
app = App()
picture = Picture(app, image="test.gif")
app.display()

The types of image (GIF, JPG, PNG, etc) supported depend on how you installed guizero and the setup of your computer.

Supported files types

All systems support the GIF file type.

Windows and Linux also support PNG files.

If you installed guizero using pip it will also have installed PIL (Python Imaging Library) and you will be able use the majority of commonly used image types.

guizero will tell you what file types are supported on your computer using the following code:

from guizero import system_config
print(system_config.supported_image_types)
Operating System PIL NOT available PIL available
Windows GIF, PNG GIF, Animated GIF, BMP, ICO, PNG, JPG, TIF
MacOS GIF GIF, Animated GIF, BMP, ICO, PNG, JPG, TIF
Linux GIF, PNG GIF, Animated GIF, BMP, ICO, PNG, JPG, TIF
Raspbian GIF, PNG GIF, Animated GIF, BMP, ICO, PNG, JPG, TIF

Resizing

When the size of a widget is changed the image will be changed to fit the widget, if PIL is available the image will be scaled correctly, if not the image will be cropped.

Animated GIFs

If PIL is installed guizero supports displaying animated GIFs, if not, the GIF will be displayed as a static image.
