aino-convert is a basically wrapper for `ImageMagick convert`_ with caching. The main purpose is to help generate quality thumbnails simply and efficiently. During the development of sorl-thumbnail I learned some and eventually I took the plunge to write something using ImageMagick convert instead of PIL.


  • Simple thumbnail tag generating high quality output
  • Remote files handling on the fly
  • Usage of convert commandline syntax for infinate flexibility
  • Caching mechanism
  • Cleanup of unused images or conversions of images can be made
  • Storage is local file storage only


  • Requirements: convert, pyexiv2 is nice to have
  • Storage is local file storage only
  • Security (protecting the developer from himself)


There is a demo in the demo directory. To run the demo it just cd in to it and type: ./run
