Hey list

I'm sorry if your guys find my post rude - it wasn't meant that way!
i find PIL a great product, but when writing the post i might have been a
little bit fustrated.

I will post an example tomorrow, when i fetch it - i might note, that i
have made a solution with imagemagick (running via an perl-script since i
couldn't find working python bindings to magick wand) and that works

But i would like a native python solution - i'll upload examples tomorrow.
