How to resize image?

I'm trying to resize an image to 500x500px but got this error:

File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\PIL\", line 1681, in save
save_handler = SAVE[format.upper()] KeyError: 'JPG'

This is the code:

from PIL import Image
img ='car.jpg')
new_img = img.resize((500,500))'car_resized','jpg')

Answer Source

You need to set the format parameter in your call to the save function to 'JPEG':

from PIL import Image
img ='car.jpg')
new_img = img.resize((500,500))"car_resized.jpg", "JPEG", optimize=True)
