I don't know what they taught you about Java programming, but Python 
programming involves typing text into a text editor or IDE, not editing 
pictures with Photoshop. So if you have a problem, the best way to get a 
solution is to post *code*, not pictures. Copy and paste the code, don't 
retype it from memory.

For the best results, please read this:

Thanks, and good luck,
