    actually the mode has to be 'rb'. still no cigar:

mdione at diablo:~/Pictures$ sqlite3 digikam4.db 
SQLite version 3.7.17 2013-05-20 00:56:22
Enter ".help" for instructions
Enter SQL statements terminated with a ";"
sqlite> select * from Images where name='DSC_9531_9532.tif';

mdione at diablo:~/Pictures$ python resize.py incoming/stitch/DSC_9531_9532.tif 

    this time I made sure the image is recent enough, as I was not sure
