That one should be fairly simple - my guess is it should take < 5 lines to
do something like that with PIL or ImageMagick

There are /many/ IDEs available, ranging from free (IDLE, included with
python) to over a hundred dollars (the super version of Wing IDE).

My suggestion is this: Work with what you're comfortable with. If you want
to use gedit and python interpreter, go ahead.

My personal preference (on any/all systems) is vi/vim in one terminal window
for the actual coding, and IPython in another window for testing snippets of
code. I have some fairly extensive python-centric modifications to my .vimrc
and other scripts and plugins.

I'm sure you'll find many different workflows that people use and several
folks will probably offer their setups for consideration.

I hope you find something comfortable for you, and feel free to ask any
questions if you get stuck.
