Does anyone have any nice examples of how to do drawing using PIL and

How do I initialise a colour palette? In particular, I'm trying to use
ImageDraw, with a new image object, and I need to know how to drive the
constructor &c for the palette.


when I try to do stuff with this image, I get told 'no palette' or similar.

now I want to set colour 0 to #000000, colour 1 to #ff0000, &c. What's
the magic required?

(On a possibly related note - when I load an existing GIF file, I find it's
palette is of type 'tuple', not of type 'ImagePalette'. I wonder if this
is what I should be doing?)
