[BangPypers] Looking for recommendation for Python image-processing library

We have been happily using the Python Imaging
Library (PIL) in a Django image -processing project
for the last year or so. Of late, we have been running
into problems with support for newer .TIFF images.
The details of this are not important, but we are
seriously worried about the complete lack of response
to both multiple requests the email address listed for
PIL commercial support, and a message on the
mailing list asking for such (paid) support.

Given this, we have no option but to start looking at
other alternatives. ImageMagick is one possibility, and
indeed, we are already using it in some areas. I would
like to ask for people's opinions on other Python imaging
libraries, whether commercial or free. Thanks in advance
for your help.
