Image Compare library failed installation

I am trying to install Image Compare Library using the command
pip install imagecompare

I can’t install the library and am getting the errors blow

(venv) <directory>pip install imagecompare

note: This error originates from a subprocess, and is likely not a problem with pip.

However, there are other Robot Framework Libraries available for Image Comparisons:



Maybe you want to give them a try instead.
