You will need to use the same versions of all dependencies as used by Coursera environment. Please read this guide for the local machine and this for Colab.

I’m facing the same issue right now. The conflicting dependency is in the draw_boxes() function. It leverages ‘ImageDraw.textsize()’ which has been deprecated in newer Pillow package releases. It has been replaced with ‘ImageDraw.textbbox()’. I have not updated the function yet. If someone has done this. Kindly post/ share the update with me.

draw = ImageDraw.Draw(image)
label_size = draw.textsize(label, font)

#Need to identify the correct x0,y0,x1,y1 coordinates
#label_size = draw.textbbox([x0,y0,x1,y1], label, font)

@ngkhatu, @Puneet_Bajaj, @saifkhanengr

In the file relative to the root of the project where the notebook is:

./yad2k/utils/        Line: 109

This code change worked for me:

#label_size = draw.textsize(label, font)
text_left, text_top, text_right, text_bottom = draw.textbbox((0,0), text=label, font=font) 
label_size = (text_right - text_left, text_bottom - text_top)

Note: The origin corner (0,0) doesn’t really matters in this context because we just need the dimensions (width and height) relative to this arbitrary anchor
