django-file-picker is a pluggable Django application used for uploading, browsing, and inserting various forms of media into HTML form fields.
When a user is editing some content, and they want to insert a link to a file or image into their content, possibly uploading the image or file in the process, django-file-picker provides the tools to do that.
Using jQuery Tools, django-file-picker integrates seamlessly into pre-existing pages by installing an overlay that lists file details and, when applicable, image thumbnails. New files can also be uploaded from within the overlay (via AJAX Upload).
django-file-picker provides a few optional extensions to help get started,
file_picker.uploads, an app with pre-built Image and File models, and
file_picker.wymeditor, an app that integrates with
WYMeditor, a web-based
WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean) XHTML editor. These extensions are
provided for convenience and can easily be replaced by custom modules.

sorl.thumbnailto INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'file_picker', 'file_picker.uploads', # file and image Django app 'file_picker.wymeditor', # optional WYMeditor plugin 'sorl.thumbnail', # required )
file_picker.uploadswill automatically create two pickers named ‘images’ and ‘files’.
Note: sorl-thumbnail was out of support for a number of years, but there is now a new pre-release that seems to work, which you can install using:
$ pip install --pre sorl-thumbnail==12.4a1
Hopefully newer releases will come soon.
