PIL and windows ico files

P: n/a
Hi all,

I'm trying to use PIL to convert windows icon files to PNG. This mostly
works, but it doesn't preserve the transparancy. Any tips or tricks on how
to preserve the transparancy?

Currently, my code looks as follows:

from PIL import Image
from PIL import IcoImagePlugin
from PIL import GifImagePlugin
Image._initialized = 1
im = Image.open( 'xplane.ico' )
im.save( 'xplane.gif' )

thanks in advance,
pieter
