PIL scans sys.path for plugins (*ImagePlugin files).  When running under
py2exe (or any other wrapper), you have to import them yourself.  Just
add import statements to your main program for all the formats you need:

    import JpegImagePlugin
    import PngImagePlugin
    import BmpImagePlugin
    import GifImagePlugin
    # etc

(to get a complete list, look in the PIL package directory)
