I dont know why people like it so complicated :-) You simply install
windows python in the same version your zope uses (also
add win32 extensions with the nice IDE at will) as well as your
PIL package. Then just change the path to the python interpreter in
your Zope installation to the system python and viola.

I'd go to the examples section. On the PIL website.

I believe the zope book, section advanced scripting
has some examples.
