pil, histogram, mask

How does one do a histogram on only a part of an image?
This is what I found in the PIL documentation about histogram( ):

"""
im.histogram(ma sk) =list

Returns a histogram for those parts of the image where the mask image
is non-zero. The mask image must have the same size as the image, and
be either a bi-level image (mode "1") or a greyscale image ("L").
"""

But I don't quite understand what "mask image is non-zero" mean. Does
it mean non-white? For instance how would I get a histogram from the
border of an image where the border is, say, 5% in width and height of
the width and heigth of the full image? Do I need to prepare a mask
image that is white in the middle and non-white at the edges? I should
maybe add that I don't need the histogram really, only the mean color
value, but as far as I can see the 'mean' attribute only applies to an
image and a mask can not be specified.

In case I overlooked something in the docs (which is easily possible)
please point me to the appropriate page.

You can slice parts of the image, and then use the
ImageStat.Stat( im).mean
On it.

Okay, I'll try that, thanks a lot.

Hi All, I am trying to use JAI to build a histogram of an image i have. I have posted the code below, and the error I get at runtime. I have taken the code from the offical java examples, so I am really puzzled why it doesn't work public PlanarImage thresholding (PlanarImage source) { // set up the histogram int bins = { 256 }; double low = { 0.0D };

Hi, I'm trying to plot a histogram on some data that I receive at runtime. I'm trying to measure distances between two points, and these distances can be from the range 1 to 5000000. I want to use a logarithmic scale with a range -2^29 to +2^29. How can I determine at any point in time which strata (i.e which cohort or portion of scale) the value belongs to (without using the square or square-root functions)? I could have mask-bits of...

I'm playing around with matplotlib for the first time. I'm trying to make a very simple histogram of values 1-6 and how many times they occur in a sequence. However, after about an hour of searching I cannot make the histogram stay within the bounds of the grid lines. Here is my example: pylab.grid() x_values= pylab.hist(x_values,6)

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
