PIL has a Windows installer available for download. On the library home page, scroll to the Downloads section and download the latest Windows executable for your version of Python. Run this file and follow the on-screen instructions.

For platforms other than Windows, you’ll need to build the library from the sources. The sources are available for download on the library’s home page and will work with any recent version of Python.
