The error you're seeing suggests that the `ANTIALIAS` attribute is not being recognized in `PIL.Image`. This could be due to incorrect import statement, or there might be a problem in your Pillow library installation. First, make sure you are importing the module correctly at the top of your Python file: ```python from PIL import Image ``` Then you should be able to use `Image.ANTIALIAS`. Your resize command should look something like this: ```python img_rescaled = img.resize((width*2, height*2), Image.ANTIALIAS) ``` If the error still persists, you might need to check your installation of the Pillow library. You can do this by testing a few import and attribute checks in Python terminal: ```python import PIL print(PIL.__version__) from PIL import Image print(dir(Image)) ``` The first command will print the version of Pillow you're using, and the second will print all the attributes and methods under `Image`. `ANTIALIAS` should be listed there. If `ANTIALIAS` is not listed, you should consider re-installing Pillow. You can use the following command for uninstallation and reinstallation: ```bash pip uninstall pillow pip install pillow ``` Remember, it's crucial that Python and libraries are up-to-date for everything to work as expected.

The `AttributeError: module ‘PIL.Image’ has no attribute ‘ANTIALIAS’` typically means that Python cannot find the ANTIALIAS attribute in the Image module of PIL (Python Imaging Library). It's quite unusual as ANTIALIAS is most certainly an attribute of PIL.Image. However, having said that, here are a few suggestions to solve the issue: **1. PIL Replacement by Pillow:** PIL has been discontinued since 2011 and its fork, Pillow, is the current modern library for image processing in Python. If you are still using PIL, this could be a cause of the issue. To use Pillow instead, uninstall PIL and then install Pillow as follows: Uninstall PIL: ``` pip uninstall PIL ``` Install Pillow: ``` pip install Pillow ``` Then in your script, make sure you import Image from PIL not from PIL.Image: ```python from PIL import Image img ='image.jpg') img_resized = img.resize((width*2, height*2), Image.ANTIALIAS) ``` **2. Namespace Error:** If you're sure the PIL version isn't causing the problem, it might be a namespace error. Try importing PIL's `Image` module using `import Image` instead of `from PIL import Image`. For other users stumbling on this question in the future, in case your problem isn't solved by the mentioned approaches, please, provide input on what PIL version you're using (you can check this by running `pip show PIL` or `pip show Pillow` in the console) and the exact lines of code that are causing the error, including import statements. This will help others provide more specific solutions to your problem.
