Image processing with Python
I'm looking for your opinions...!
I wish to code a webapp that is going to do some heavy image processing,
1. I'm thinking of using Python's PIL to decode upload jpeg/png/etc images before applying my own algorithms and saving out the processed image - sound like a reasonable use of PIL?
2. Initially I was thinking of using Google App Engine, but it seems there are restrictions on the file size to 1mb, I'd prefer/need a higher limit than this. I'm not sure if such a webapp is going to happily reside on a shared hosting environment, even for the initial prototyping phase. Am I looking at a need for a VPS?
