Django: field type ImageField + PIL
December 31, 2008 § 3 Comments
When using Django model’s ImageField, you need to have Python Image Library installed.
If your machine is Linux, easy job. Simply do the typical: wget, configure, make, and make install.
If your machine is Intel OS X… not so easy.
The configure script assumes that the OS X is using PPC architecture, thus make install would fail.
Luckily, folks at pythonmac.org provided a nice installer for PIL. You can get those here. It works for both Tiger and Leopard.
