You can see [this question]that I did ( if you have any problem with the instalation.

Puedes ver esta pregunta que realicé en caso de tener cualquier problema con la instalacion.

For test the instalacion of SimpleCV on windows 7 , follow the next steps :

  1. Make a directory, by example : C:\SimpleCV\myTests ; and place it.
  2. Connect your webcam to the computer or laptop
  3. Open Note Bloc and type the following code :
from SimpleCV import Camera, Display, Image

# Initialice the camera
cam = Camera()

# Initialice a window
disp = Display()

while( disp.isNotDone() ):

  # Capture a image througth the camera
  img = cam.getImage()

  # Show the image on the display disp )

4.- Save the file as : in the C:\SimpleCV\myTests directory
5.- through the cmd go to : C:\SimpleCV\myTests
6.- And type : python If this code run with any problem, then the simpleCv was installed successful. Else consult the link adobe.

Greets. Saludos !!

I'm not quite sure what your issue is. If you are asking how to install SimpleCV on windows 7 there is a sidebar on the homepage of that says "Getting Started", under it there is a link to installation, it includes instructions how to install it under windows 7.

If you already have SimpleCV installed correctly then it shouldn't matter if you are windows or anything other operating system as python is agnostic for the most part (except with handling file system related stuff). If you are asking how you learn SimpleCV there is a link labeled "learn" on the homepage of, there is also We have also released a book on SimpleCV to learn how to use it as well.
