[Fixed]-How do I add PIL to PyDev in Eclipse, so i could import it and use it in my project?


Had the same problem here.
Got it resolved by adding /usr/share/pyshared to the Libraries tab in window->preferences->pydev->Interpreter – Python.

There were a lot of /usr/lib/python* paths with the compiled libraries (the C stuff with python bindings) where included already, but not /usr/share… parts with the source.



Try to go to Window -> Preferences -> Pydev-> Interpreter -> Python Interpreter -> Forced Builtins tab.
Then add a PIL entry and apply.
I’ve had the same unresolved import error when tried to import from this particular package (other packages worked fine), and found this information which finally helped me.
