How can I display an image file in Python script?

Tue Jul 01, 2014 3:49 am

Hi, I am writing a program that should display an image file that had been taken earlier using PiCam and raspistill command.
The image is stored in /home/pi and the file name is face.jpg. I want it to show up for a few seconds so user can view the image without clicking anything. The image viewer should close after the time set. Any idea how can I so this? Thanks.

Simple PyQT4/5 application could do that using QLabel to display it and QTimer to close after some time.

or Python Tkinter and PIL. All are installed in the RPi

Assuming that you are using a full stock install of Raspbian.

Side note: If you're using raspistill with python, maybe you'd be better served by http://picamera.readthedocs.org/ ?
