OSX – Install PIL on OSX 10.7 Lion

by Yuji

If the jpeg encoder is not available when PIL is compiled, you should simply remove PIL, and reinstall it after making sure libjpeg successfully installs.

I use homebrew to install libjpeg.

brew install libjpeg

# linking failed for me
sudo brew link jpeg

# sudo pip uninstall PIL if you already have PIL installed.
sudo pip install PIL
