Man, this is so tedious!
I have spend already hours trying to get the darn thing to do what I want. So far, I tried the composite and paste function of PIL and it always ends up with the same: it shows one image or the other, but never both.
Why is this so difficult? Do I really have to use Imagemagick over the command line with os.system? This cannot be seriously it???
At this point I wonder if PIL is defective, that it just does not work.
I mean, how hard is it?? You got two images, most of both is alpha (transparent). Some stuff is not, so you want to combine both, 100%, no blending or anything. The parts of the two images don't overlap, so no blending would be needed in any case.
I just don't get it.
