PIL and ImageMagick scalability

Hi everyone!

I have a question about image processing. We have a website which will
process a lot of images a day.It will be running Apache(worker) with
mod_python. My question is what should we use for processing. If we
use PIL the processing will be done with the same process that handles
other requests and that will probably slow them down when there will
be a peak. If we use ImageMagick you create new process that does the
image processing which probably uses multiple CPUs better and is more
scalable, right?

Thanks, Sebastjan
