Welcome back! Python is an awesome programming language with a ton of capability, if you’re new to Python, check out the link below to learn more about it:

So, let’s talk about an awesome Python project you need to check out, this project is the Depix project! Luckily for us, this project is hosted on GitHub, check out the link below to learn more about it:

Now, this specific project helps you read pixelated screens, what does that mean? Essentially, this project allows us to take our pixelated images, run it through this program, and allow us to discern what the pixelated areas of the image was essentially hiding, here is an example of this projects capablity:

If this looks like fun, you can try this out for yourself! You can use the following git clone command to pull this repository:

git clone
cd Depix

At this point, you want to install the dependencies:

python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

You can then run this program:

python -p /path/to/your/input/image.png -s images/searchimages/debruinseq_notepad_Windows10_closeAndSpaced.png -o /path/to/your/output.png

From there, you can interchange the images to whichever ones you want, and you should be able to get an output that helps you discern the pixels from your image!
