OSX Pillow Incompatible library version libtiff.5.dylib & libjpeg.8.dylib

I've got this error while trying to use Pilow on any scripts:

File "/Users/antonio/WWW/myproj/myproj/functions.py", line 12, in <module>
from PIL import Image, ImageOps
File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/PIL/Image.py", line 53, in <module>
from PIL import _imaging as core
ImportError: dlopen(/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/PIL/_imaging.so, 2): Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libjpeg.8.dylib
Referenced from: /usr/local/lib/libtiff.5.dylib
Reason: Incompatible library version: libtiff.5.dylib requires version 13.0.0 or later, but libjpeg.8.dylib provides version 9.0.0


Can anyone help me?

Answer

I had the same problem and i had to reinstall pillow and all is dependencies. Some of my symlink where not good.

First you have to make:

brew doctor

And see if you have some errors. Mine was like this :

Warning: Unbrewed dylibs were found in /usr/local/lib.
If you didn't put them there on purpose they could cause problems when
building Homebrew formulae, and may need to be deleted.

Unexpected dylibs:
/usr/local/lib/libjpeg.8.dylib
/usr/local/lib/libpng.3.dylib
/usr/local/lib/libpng12.0.dylib
/usr/local/lib/libpng14.14.dylib

Warning: Unbrewed .la files were found in /usr/local/lib.
If you didn't put them there on purpose they could cause problems when
building Homebrew formulae, and may need to be deleted.

Unexpected .la files:
/usr/local/lib/libjpeg.la
/usr/local/lib/libpng12.la
/usr/local/lib/libpng14.la
/usr/local/lib/libpng15.la

Warning: Unbrewed .pc files were found in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig.
If you didn't put them there on purpose they could cause problems when
building Homebrew formulae, and may need to be deleted.

 Unexpected .pc files:
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libpng12.pc
/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/libpng14.pc

Warning: Unbrewed static libraries were found in /usr/local/lib.
If you didn't put them there on purpose they could cause problems when
building Homebrew formulae, and may need to be deleted.

Unexpected static libraries:
/usr/local/lib/libjpeg.a
/usr/local/lib/libpng12.a
/usr/local/lib/libpng14.a

So i decided to clean all errors and dependencies i have installed:

brew uninstall pillow
brew uninstall libpng
brew uninstall libjpeg
brew uninstall webp
brew uninstall libtiff
brew uninstall littlecms

brew prune => to clean symlink

When my brew doctor was without any errors i just run brew install pillow and all was working fine.

Hope it's help.
