So my first task was to setup python and the PIL image library on my windows machine. I had python installed but the PIL installer couldn’t find it, so I had reinstall python. After that I did a quick check:
>>> from PIL import Image >>> quit()
No errors so I was ready to go!
Learning python as you code
I had used python a bit earlier but honestly too little. So this was a nice chance to learn some more. Luckily they had some sample code to get started with.
After fixing some syntax issues from my copy-paste, I had a the example program running and producing the image seen below!
It took me 2-3 hours to get the image unshredded.
I used the nice python tutorial a lot and getting used to the syntax took a while (no semicolons! no curly braces!). But I found python to be really easy and powerful language!
Here’s the solution, not very elegant but pretty readable IMO ;).
I have updated my solution with a solution to the bonus challenge.
