I am trying to create a small program that searches a folder of images, chooses one, checks its size and finishes if the chosen image is at least 5KB. If it is not then I need it to loop back to the choosing step (and then the size check, and so on..)
I am using functions for the choosing and the size-check but when I try to use them in a while loop I get all sorts of indentation errors and now I’m very confused. I’ve commented the section where I was using the function, but really I guess I want the whole thing to loop back, to the comment at the top..
Here’s my code –
#CHOOSE POINT def chosen(): random.choice(os.listdir(r"/Users/me/p1/images")) def size(): os.path.getsize(r"/Users/me/p1/images/"+chosen) thresh = 5000 while size < thresh: print(chosen + " is too small") # loop back to CHOOSE POINT else: print(chosen + " is at least 5KB")
Am I thinking about this all wrong? Will using the function in my while-loop do what I want? What’s the best way to achieve what I’m trying to do? I’m quite new to this and getting very confused.
