Hmm. You've stumbled upon something that have been on my TODO list a
The ImagePalette module doesn't work as it should, so it really takes
some magic to do what you need:
image = Image.new("P",(400,400))
# create a list to hold the palette
palette = [(0,0,0)] * 256
# set an entry
palette = (255, 0, 0)
palette = (255, 255, 255)
# convert the list to a string
palette = map(lambda a: chr(a)+chr(a)+chr(a), palette)
palette = string.join(palette, "")
# attach it to the image
Note that its "image.im", not just "image". See WmfImagePlugin.py for
some variations of this theme.
(And yes, now that ImageDraw is getting quite useful, I'd better fix
the palette module).
