Comment(by cjgohlke):

 This is a known problem with PIL that many other packages experience. As a
 workaround one can put the following statements in the user code:

 import sys
 import PIL.Image
 sys.modules['Image'] = PIL.Image

 Fredrik Lundh pronounced at http://mail.python.org/pipermail/image-
 sig/2011-January/006650.html that as of PIL 1.2 pre-alpha "PIL now lives
 in the PIL namespace only". So it would be more future-proof to change all
 "import Image" statements to "from PIL import Image".
