Have you tried django-athumb , you will do it.


  • The primary benefit of django-athumb is that the thumbnails are generated when the user loads the original image. Instead of generating on-demand previews and making the user wait, we get it right from the start.
  • Written in a sketch code of straw
  • Simple and easy to install
  • This can run on your own hardware at a decent speed. Running it on EC2 makes it much faster.


I am using ImageKit 2 (alpha) - with S3 just fine.

Using django-storages

in my settings:


DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'storages.backends.s3boto.S3BotoStorage'

# stops IK checking S3 all the time - main reason to use IK v2 for me
IMAGEKIT_DEFAULT_IMAGE_CACHE_BACKEND = 'imagekit.imagecache.NonValidatingImageCacheBackend'
