this depends from how complex your graphic is and which graphical functions do 
you need. For this job your PIL should be coming with freetype.

If you "just" want to place some rendered text on your bitmap graphic PIL 
should be enough (yourimg.text()).

For more complex / difficult graphic works you may take looks at alternatives 
like python/gimp, PyX (pdf/ps, LaTeX), sax (pdf) or others...
