The Python Imaging Library (PIL)

The Python Imaging Library (PIL) is a set of modules that can perform all sorts of image manipulation and processing in Python. PIL is designed to be cross-platform, so it can be used on almost any platform with Python support. But it does support some Windows-specific extensions, allowing PIL to display images using the Windows API.

PIL is suitable for many image-related tasks. You can use it to create thumbnails automatically from a collection of images, to convert between graphical formats, or even as the basis of a graphical image-manipulation tool.

PIL comes with extensive documentation and can be found on the Internet at http://www.pythonware.com.
