Thank you Juraj for your answer!

I tried to run your code from within Scribus and it failed with the same
error as mine!
It may be you're right, and the python that scribus uses cannot find PIL
module. I'll try to work on that!

I'm sorry I didn't include info about OS and Scribus version...newbie
I'm running Scribus 1.4.5 on Windows7!

I'll let you guys know if I'll be able to work this out!
