[Numpy-discussion] Update for IM. a small image processing system

I am producing and reading 16 bit tiff files using PIL. These files
however can not be displayed by most image processing programs (gimp
does fine).

Hi Sebastian,

I use the 1.1.4 final version. I do however, have images that are not read by 
PIL ('cannot identify image file'). I think these files are okay, since I can 
read them in a scientific imaging program. So maybe the 16bit support in PIL 
is not complete.
