This is of interest to those people using the (excellent) PDF generator,
ReportLab <http://www.reportlab.com/> under Zope.
As you may know, there is an import conflict with the 'Image' module from PIL
and the built in Zope 'Image' module when using ReportLab. The snippet below
is from the main ReportLab developer, Andy Robinson.

We will try to do this. But which import format
does Zope require? 'import Image'
of 'import PIL.Image'? And is this some sort of
packaged 'PIL-for-Zope'? If it was just PIL on your
hard disk, you would have 100% control over the
problem just by adding the right directory to your
Sorry, I'm working all hours and don't have time to
download and play with Zope this month.
So, can anyone with a higher 'import' Zope Zen please give me a clue as to how
to reply to Andy? In my own reportlab distribution I changed;
from PIL import Image
and that seemed ok, but I'd like a 'definitive' answer on this from some bods
with Nirvana-level Zen....
BTW, If you're not a reportlab user (open source, free download), then you're
missing out - this is terrific software...we have it connected to ZSQL methods
and are churning out PDF documents *very* quickly.
