About Pillow and PIL
PIL (Python Imaging Library) is a powerful and convenient image processing library for Python, and is relatively well known. However, it is only supported up to Python 2.7.

Pillow is a derivative of PIL, but has evolved into a more dynamic image processing library than PIL itself. The latest version is currently 3.0.0.
