Testing the PIL vs numpy in calculating the mean value of each color channel of
an image I timed the following.
impil = Image.open("10.tif")
imnum = asarray(impil)
#in PIL
for i in range(1,10):
stats = ImageStat.Stat(impil)
stats.mean
# for numpy
for i in range(1,10):
imnum.reshape(-1,3).mean(axis=0)
The image I tested initially is 2000x2000 RGB tif ~11mb in size. I set a timer
in each for loop and measured the performance of numpy 7 times slower than PIL.
When I did the the same with an 10x10 RGB tif and with 1000 cycles in for, numpy
was 25 times faster than PIL. Why is that? Does mean or reshape, make a copy?
