I have opened an image using the PhotoImage method of ImageTk
How do I close the image.
This is the scenario is I am using it in. I have 2 buttons, one each to open an image from disk & image from url. When I open either of them the image is displayed. But when I open a new image, the old image remains on the screen & the new image is displayed below it.
How do I close the old image so that only the new image is seen.
Code snippet of for opening the images:
def file_open(self): filename =askopenfilename(filetypes=imageTypes) image1 = ImageTk.PhotoImage(Image.open(filename)) panel1 = Label(self, image=image1) panel1.pack(side='top', fill='both', expand='yes') panel1.image = image1 def openurl(self): url= tkSimpleDialog.askstring("Open URL","Enter URL") file =urllib.urlopen(url) im = cStringIO.StringIO(file.read()) img = Image.open(im) image1 = ImageTk.PhotoImage(img) panel1 = Label(self, image=image1) panel1.pack(side='top', fill='both', expand='yes') panel1.image = image1
