The Python Imaging Library seems to be what you need; look at . PIL lets you create Image
objects which are bitmaps that you can draw on and manipulate in
various ways, and save Images in one of a large number of different
formats, GIF and JPEG being the most common ones. There's also some
connectivity with Tkinter, so you can display Images on a canvas. I'm
not sure if PIL's font code can handle rotation, though.
