Python-Pillow: How to get Image Filename, Size, Format, and Mode

In this article, we'll learn how to get the file name, size, format, and mode of an image.

Pillow - Image filename

To get the image file name, we need to follow the subsequent syntax:

image.filename

Now let's get the file name with an example.

from PIL import Image

# Open Image
im = Image.open("py.jpg")

# Print the file name
print(im.filename)

Output:

py.jpg

Note: You must open the image with Image.open() pillow method.

Pillow - Image file size

The image size syntax:

image.size

In the following example, we'll see how to get the image file size:

# Open Image
im = Image.open("py.jpg")

# Print the image size
print(im.size)

Output:

(1395, 864)

As you can see, the result is a tuple. The size is in pixels.

Width: 1395, Height: 864

The following program will print Width and Height:

# Print Width
print("Width:", im.width)

# Print Height
print("Height:", im.height)

Output:

Width: 1395
Height: 864

Pillow - Image file Format (Type)

The image file format can be:

  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • GIF
  • SVG
  • WebP

Here is the syntax for getting the image file format:

image.format

Here is an example for getting the image file format:

# Open Image
im = Image.open("py.jpg")

# Print the image format
print(im.format)

Output:

JPEG

Pillow - Image File Mode

Mode is the numbers and names of the bands in the image. It will be “RGB” if the image color is true and CMYK if the image is pre-press.

The image mode syntax:

image.mode

The image mode example:

# Open Image
im = Image.open("py.jpg")

# Print the image mode
print(im.mode)

Output:

RGB
