Dear Fredik,

I have tried to copy PIL folder into my application folder. I am using 
Tkinter also, and when I want to put an image as label I do:
   photo1 = Image.open(r"Myimage.gif")
   photo = ImageTk.PhotoImage(photo1)
   llogo =Label(root, image=photo,bg="white",height=60)

And I receive an error message, telling me that imaging C library is not 
installed. As I have read, PIL is composed of PIL library and a PIL binary 
module called  _imaging.pyd or _imaging.so or something like this. I have 
download Imaging-1.1.6 source code, and I found PIL folder, but not binary 
file. If I download windows exe installer, it works great, but I want to 
install manually for installing it on my PDA.... SOS :-S :-(

Best Regards,

PIL's just a bunch of modules in a single PIL directory; you can put 
that directory (or the modules themselves) wherever you want.

(if you're on windows, unzip the EXE installer to get the files)
