ImageDraw line inconsistent ? (repost)

Hi there,

Sorry to repost this, but I didn't get any answer one month ago. In
essence, it seems that the ImageDraw line function draws lines one
pixel shorter in some circumstances. This could be very annoying for
some applications where precise geometry does matter.

Below I test this function on a 3x3 image and show schematic
representations of obtained images (where o means a drawn pixel)

import Image, ImageDraw
im = Image.new("L", (3,3))
draw = ImageDraw.Draw( im)
draw.line((0,0, 2,2), fill=255)



So the last pixel of the line is not drawn.

Similarly, draw.line((0,2, 2,0), fill=255) gives:


And draw.line((1,0, 1,2), fill=255) gives:


But, surprisingly, draw.line((0,1, 2,1), fill=255) gives:


Where the last pixel of the line -is- drawn, as I expected it would be
for all lines.

This seems to be true for various image sizes and line angles: the last
pixel is never drawn unless the line is horizontal.

Any clues ?

I am using PIL to generate som graphs, like: draw = ImageDraw.Draw(im) for graph in self.graphs: polygon = graph.getPolygon() draw.polygon(polygon, outline=graph.color) del draw But the linewidth of my polygon is only one pixel wide. Is there any way to set it to something else?

I've resorted to actually drawing all of the characters of the alphabet on a graph to avoid having to drag around font files. It's mostly just uppercase characters, so it's not too bad. But I noticed that some of the line segments have to be extended one pixel longer than they should be in order for the last pixel to show up. The character cells are 6 pixels wide by 8 pixels high. An "L" is drawn with
