I am trying to install PIL (the Python Imaging Library) using the command:

sudo pip install pil

but I get the following message:

  1. Install Xcode and Xcode Command Line Tools as mentioned.
  2. Use Pillow instead, as PIL is basically dead. Pillow is a maintained fork of PIL.

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Pillow/2.2.1

pip install Pillow

If you have both Pythons installed and want to install this for Python3:

python3 -m pip install Pillow
