A simple module to crop images in an easy way in Django Administration.

Install ``django-simplecrop`` (or download from [PyPI]( "Download from PyPI")):

pip install django-simplecrop

Add ``simplecrop`` to ``INSTALLED_APPS`` in ````:


Include ``simpleCropAutodiscover()`` after ``admin.autodiscover()``:

from simplecrop.utils import simpleCropAutodiscover


Include ``simplecrop.urls`` in ````:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
url(r'^simplecrop/', include('simplecrop.urls')),


Include the ``__crops__`` parameter in your model and specify the field and image sizes:

class MyModel(models.Model):
__crops__ = [
["image", ["110x110", "200x150"]]

title = models.CharField(u"Title", max_length=128)
text = models.TextField("Text")
image = models.ImageField("Image", upload_to="images")

Step 1 - Add image:
![Step 1]( "Step 1")

Step 2 - Crop images:
![Step 2]( "Step 2")

Template tag
Use the template tag `{% thumbnail %}` in your templates:

How to use:

<img name="myimage" src="{% thumbnail ImageObj '100x100' %}" />

\* *This template tag obtains the thumbnail image created when saving in admin. If it does not exist, a new thumbnail with the specified sizes will be created.*
