You must have PIL installed for this example to work. See the
for more information on PIL. To use this code create an External
Method named *makeThumbnail* that uses the *makeThumbnail*
function in the *Thumbnail* module.

How do I install PIL on a Windows Platform ?

(a) Download PIL Windows executable installation package for python 2.1:
http://www.pythonware.com/downloads/py21-pil-1.1.2-20010910.exe. (b) Execute this to install PIL into
c:\py21. (c) In the Zope bin folder (e.g. c:\Program Files\WebSite\bin) create folder lib\site-packages and
copy or move contents of c:\py21 there. (d) In the bin folder create file PIL.pth containing two lines:
lib/site-packages and lib/site-packages/DLLs. (e) Restart Zope. -VS

July 15: CAVEAT: there are several Zopes and several PILs.
Choose one where the python versions match!
