Is it possible to read meta data in image files like
jpeg, png or gif by PIL(Python Image Library)? I read
handbook in PIL website but I am not sure. 

What I want to do finally is to make a script which
resize image, and insert a black border with titled
by meta data in each image file. Can I do this with PIL?

Any advice?
