Your script is meant to create something like this?

A few months ago I wrote this script to get familiarized with Python. It 
has a few disadvantages:
* It is not written in English (in Dutch actually).
* Written using a procedural/modular programming style.
   No classes are used, so it is not very "Pythonic"
* Written to meet my needs to get pictures published on my website.
* No GUI.

When I get rid of the first two disadvantages, I will publish the 
sourcecodes on my website. It will be GPL'ed.

So far, I tested it on Linux and WinNT and it seems to work fine. It 
uses the "Python Imaging Library" instead of "ImageMagick". Using PIL 
gives it a better performance.

There is another option:

This is an Open Source application, built using Python. If you can get 
the source, this may be your best choice.
