On Windows, PIL (private port at 
<http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/#pil>), PythonMagick 
<http://www.imagemagick.org/download/python/>, and pygame 1.9.2pre 
<http://www.pygame.org> are working reasonably well for image IO. Also 
the FreeImage library <http://freeimage.sourceforge.net/> is easy to use 
with ctypes <http://docs.python.org/py3k/library/ctypes.html>.
