The graphics guide on page 4 says to use 'saveToFile' rather than
drawToFile with PNG output:

If we wanted to generate the same drawing as a bitmap file for a website,
say, all we need to do is write code like this:

from reportlab=2Egraphics import renderPM
renderPM=2EsaveToFile(d, 'example1=2Epng', 'PNG')

Many other bitmap formats, like GIF, JPG, TIFF, BMP and PPN are genuinely
available, making it unlikely you'll need to add external postprocessing
steps to convert to the final format you need=2E

That's what I tried=2E  It could be that the guide is out-of-date=2E =20

In any case, I tried using drawToFile instead, and that caused a lengthy
error message to run past my screen=2E

Is anyone else successfully outputting =2Epng format files with reportlab?=
