Found a bug!
Change, into the funct_list, at line 119,
('FreeImage_MakeThumbnail', '@12', (CO.COL_8, CO.COL_24, CO.COL_32) ),
('FreeImage_MakeThumbnail', '@12', CO.COL_1TO32 ),
and it'll work.
Or update to the new svn version (r21), that adds the
__iter__ method for the Image class. Now you can do this:

fname = "01-PJ2306.tif"
img = FIPY.Image(fname)

for bmp in img:
     new_img = bmp.thumbnail(300)
