Each tiff file has 4 images in it. I do not wish to extract and save them if possible, I would just like to use a for loop to look at each of them. (Like look at the pixel [0,0] )and depending on what color it is in all 4 I will do something accordingly.
Is this possible using PIL? If not what should I use.
You can use the "seek" method of a PIL image to have access to the different pages of a tif (or frames of an animated gif).
from PIL import Image img = Image.open('multipage.tif') for i in range(4): try: img.seek(i) print img.getpixel( (0, 0)) except EOFError: # Not enough frames in img break
