Day 067 - Project 67 : Simple Guess Who

If you have any questions, comments or issues with this project please post them here!

Hi Ian! I installed the pillow-pil package from the ‘packages’ tab, but, even after installing it, I get an import error whenever I run the ‘’ file. I get the below error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 2, in
from PIL import Image, ImageTK
ImportError: cannot import name ‘ImageTK’ from ‘PIL’ (/home/runner/Day67100Days/venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/PIL/

Nvm. Used ChatGPT to figure it out!

Problem was that I used ‘ImageTK’ instead of ‘ImageTk’.

Also please note that the video for this day67 incorrectly states to use ‘ImageTK’.


Great spot @SixftOne-MLH I’ll pass this information on so it can be edited!

When I run David’s solution code it says ‘container is not defined’ :confused:

yup… right… the solution is not working, the png files are missing, tkinter seems like a really nice thing to skip -.-

fiddled with it and with the help of chatgpt I got it working… super weird this tkinter…

This took me a long time to figure out. In addition to the problem in the video mentioned above, it also says in the video to use like this:

image = tk.PhotoImage(".tutorial/Guess Who/charlotte.jpg") )

I ran into two problems with this. The first is I need to change packages from tk (tkinter) to ImageTk. The second is I can no longer scale my image using .subsample(). ChatGPT told me to use image.resize() instead, and apply it in between the two functions above. End code that worked:

image =".tutorial/Guess Who/charlotte.jpg")

image = image.resize((image.width // 5, image.height // 5))

image = ImageTk.PhotoImage(image)

Here is what I did and it shows images really nice . Got the idea and help from @Capresis and chatGPT:

import tkinter as tk
from PIL import Image , ImageTk

window = tk.Tk()
window.title("Guess Who")

hello = tk.Label(text = "Guess Who")

def guesswho():
  input = text.get("1.0","end").lower().strip()
  hello["text"] = "Guess Who"
  if input == "charlotte":
    canvas.itemconfig(container, image = tk_charlotte)
  elif input == "gerald":
    canvas.itemconfig(container, image = tk_gerald)  
  elif input == "katie":
    canvas.itemconfig(container, image = tk_katie)
  elif input == "mo":
    canvas.itemconfig(container, image = tk_mo)
    hello["text"] = "Image not found"

text = tk.Text(window ,height =  1 ,width = 25)

button = tk.Button(text = "Find", command = guesswho)  

canvas = tk.Canvas(window, width = 300, height = 200)

charlotte =".tutorial/Guess Who/charlotte.jpg")
resized_charlotte = charlotte.resize((100, 100), Image.LANCZOS)
tk_charlotte = ImageTk.PhotoImage(resized_charlotte)

gerald =".tutorial/Guess Who/gerald.jpg")
resized_gerald = gerald.resize((100, 100), Image.LANCZOS)
tk_gerald = ImageTk.PhotoImage(resized_gerald)

katie =".tutorial/Guess Who/katie.jpg")
resized_katie = katie.resize((100, 100), Image.LANCZOS)
tk_katie = ImageTk.PhotoImage(resized_katie)

mo =".tutorial/Guess Who/mo.jpg")
resized_mo = mo.resize((100, 100), Image.LANCZOS)
tk_mo = ImageTk.PhotoImage(resized_mo)

container = canvas.create_image(150,50,image=None)


As Dave (and also some of my friends) said we shouldn’t be focusing on mastering tkinter, so I instantly regret spending too much time on these days 66-69 :crying_cat_face:
