please , how can i install python-imaging package

Hi there, python imaging (PIL) is already installed - the problem is that it is a strange package that doesn't always install the same way on all platforms.

So, in some online instructions, you will find it says you need to do:

import Image

In others instructions, you have to do:

from PIL import Image

On PythonAnywhere, it's the second version. So, as rcs1000 says, you'll need to change those import lines

On a related subject: is there a post on how virtualenv is set up to work at PAW? It's wonderful because pip is an integral part of that package.

I noticed /usr/local/bin/virtualenv is available. My scripts, however, require a direct link to -- so does anybody know?

(Sure, I could just upload my private copy, but I figure PAW always updates theirs to the latest version, and there might be special paths and symlinks tailored for this particular system :-) Thanks!
