I tried to write text with ImageDraw.  But it seems that the following file
is missing:

Somebody knows how to use fonts in PIL? For exemple fonts already available
under windows.

C:\python22\Samples>c:\python22\python.exe painter.py test2.bmp
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "painter.py", line 71, in ?
    draw.text( (100,100), "Hallo" )
  File "C:\python22\PIL\ImageDraw.py", line 155, in text
    font = self.getfont()
  File "C:\python22\PIL\ImageDraw.py", line 61, in getfont
    self.font = ImageFont.load_path("BDF/courR14.pil")
  File "c:\python22\PIL\ImageFont.py", line 136, in load_path
    raise IOError, "cannot find font file"
IOError: cannot find font file

Thanks in advance, Maarten
