scikit-image is a toolkit used for image processing that requires PIL, SciPy, Cython, and NumPy. Windows installers are available too. The toolkit is part of the Enthought Python Distribution, as well as the Python(x, y) distribution.
As usual, install scikit-image using any one of the following two commands:
$ pip install -U scikit-image $ easy_install -U scikit-image
Again, you may need to run these commands as root.
Another option is to obtain the latest development version by cloning the Git repository, or downloading the repository as a source archive from Github. Then run the following command:
$ python setup.py install
