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
to view our primary repository of Python modules.
