There is the Python Image Library (PIL), but when I tried to install
it I of course had to install the JPEG package as well which didn't
install correctly. After trying several times to install it (the JPEG
package that is, PIL installed fine, but I only wanted it for the
extra image support) I just gave up.

Does anyone know of a quick and easy install for PIL + JPEG for Mac OS
X (10.5)?
