Installing scikits-image

scikits image is a toolkit for image processing, which requires PIL, SciPy, Cython, and NumPy. There are Windows installers available for it. It is part of Enthought Python Distribution, as well as the Python(x, y) distribution.

How to do it...

As usual, we can install using either of the following two commands:

pip install -U scikits-image
