Well, obviously you didn't get an image back from Image.Image().
In fact, I suspect you would've at least have to have given it a size
or something.  It clearly returned None, and you're trying to call
a method that None doesn't have, like it says.

Definitely check the PIL manual for what Image.Image() is
supposed to return, and what it requires to have valid output.
