There are more ways to do this in Python than you can shake a 
stick at.  This is definitely a good place to be.

Using the Pythonware Imaging Library (PIL) you can easily do this;
you could also use gdmodule, which I maintain now at:


or piddle/sping, or, or...

Lots of options.  Visit the Vaults of Parnassus at
