So you’re trying to get something done and you’ve found an awesome tool to install via pip. You pop open Terminal, run your pip install command (in my case, pip install google_images_download), install the module successfully, and are ready to get to work. You start working on your Python script and get an error:
ImportError: No module named google_images_download
Well, that doesn’t make sense, you just installed it.
Turns out, it may not have been installed in the right place.
I found my solution here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/32680081/importerror-after-successful-pip-installation
python -m before your pip install command.
I also had to set up pip directly in my python environment using this command
python -m ensurepip --upgrade --user
Final Set of Commands
python -m ensurepip –upgrade –user
python -m pip install google_images_download –user
No more errors. Nice!
