I wanted to generate Captcha images(*) from Python and I couldn't find any module that
suited my needs so I made one myself.
It only needs PIL. (I used PIL 1.1.6)
It can generate images with a provided background or it can make a random background for
you. It needs a truetype font to draw the letters, and outputs jpeg images.
You can download the module from http://www.razorvine.net/download/captcha.py
and see some images it made here: http://www.razorvine.net/download/captcha-examples/
I'm planning to improve it a bit still, I don't like the random noise lines.
It should probably draw an angled line such as you see in the wikipedia article.
Hope it's useful for anyone beside myself :)
