Hey, @Nishant,

Try installing the package named Pillow, it's a PIL Fork. You can use it the same as the PIL package.

Hi Gitika,

I have already installed the pillow package, but my program is still showing me the error for PIL module.

I am trying to run a program which is using MyQR package and it is showing me the following error :

$ C:/Python/Python38/python.exe d:/MCA/MyProject/Project/generate.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "d:/MCA/MyProject/Project/generate.py", line 1, in <module>
    from MyQR import myqr
  File "C:\Python\Python38\lib\site-packages\MyQR\myqr.py", line 5, in <module>
    from MyQR.mylibs import theqrmodule
  File "C:\Python\Python38\lib\site-packages\MyQR\mylibs\theqrmodule.py", line 3, in <module>
    from MyQR.mylibs import data, ECC, structure, matrix, draw
  File "C:\Python\Python38\lib\site-packages\MyQR\mylibs\draw.py", line 3, in <module>
    from PIL import Image
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PIL'

Please help me in this

Thanking You...!!!

Hi. @Shravani,

Are you facing a problem installing Pillow or the error which is given above? And what is the exact error you are getting? Please post your workaround.

Facing same issue plz help me
I have already installed the pillow package, but my program is still showing me the error for importing  PIL module.

Hello,

Have you try the solution @MD(given below)? In case if that didn't work read this.
and setup the interpreter for the project to be python3.8 with Pillow installed

Hi, @There,

On some installs of PIL, You must do

import Image

instead of import PIL (PIL is in fact not always imported this way). Since import Image works for you, this means that you have in fact installed PIL.

Hi@Nishant,

You can use PILLOW instead of PIL.

$ pip3 install PILLOW

>>> import PIL

Now it works fine. Try this once.
