    Here in this article, we have provided two different python source codes which can find the resolution of a jpeg image.

    Prerequisite topics to create this program.

    • Python Function
    • Python File handling.
    • Python PIL library
    • Python user-defined function
    • Python file I/O

    Find the Size (Resolution) of a JPEG Image Without any External Library: Code:

    def image_resolution(filename):
       # open image in binary mode
       with open(filename,'rb') as img:
           # height of image (in 2 bytes) is at 164th position
           # read the 2 bytes
           x =
           # calculate height
           height = (x[0] << 8) +x[1]
           # next 2 bytes is width
           x =
           # calculate width
           width = (x[0] << 8) + x[1]
       print("Width X Height: ", width,"X",height)


    Width X Height: 57601 X 255

    Find the Size (Resolution) of Image With PIL Library

    Use the pip install PIL command to install the PIL library:


    from PIL import Image
    image = "Image.jpg"
    img =
    width, height = img.size
    print("The image resolution  is", width, "x", height)


    The image resolution is 1333 x 1000
