0 votes

Hello guys, when I import an image it shows: 

UnicodeDecodeError: "utf-8" codec can"t decode byte 0xa0 in position 10: invalid start byte
code:
def importImage():
    result[0] = filedialog.askopenfile(mode = 'r', title = "Select file", initialdir =      "/home/amine/Bureau/desktop", filetypes = (("jpg files", ".jpg"), ("all files", ".*")))
    openImage = Image.open(result[0])
    resiszeImage = openImage.resize((247, 248))
    myImage = PhotoImage(resiszeImage)
    uploadCnavs.config(image = myImage)

Hi@Amine,

The error is because there is some non-ASCII character and it can't be encoded/decoded.  One simple way to avoid this error is to encode such strings. You can use the below line in your code. 

openImage = Image.open(result[0],encoding="utf8")
