What Phil and Pete are saying is that Qt doesn't provide enough information
about why saving fails, so there's nothing that PyQt can retrieve for you to
let you know what happened.
In your script, you initially create an indexed image, but you don't supply
a color table, and presumably Qt doesn't create a default one for you. When
you try to save this image as a PNG file, no palette data is available, so
libpng is understandably upset. :-) Maybe QImage should check for this case
before trying to write the image. This may be something you should report
Once you convert to different formats, it seems that a color table is created
and filled in with default values.
