The scikit-image mailing-list is (users should join before posting). This mailing-list is shared by users and developers, and it is the right place to ask any question about skimage, or in general, image processing using Python. Posting snippets of code with minimal examples ensures to get more relevant and focused answers.

We would love to hear from how you use skimage for your work on the mailing-list!
