    image2 = StdImageField(upload_to='path/to/img', blank=True) # can be deleted throwgh admin
    image3 = StdImageField(upload_to='path/to/img', variations={'thumbnail': (100, 75)}) # creates a thumbnail resized to maximum size to fit a 100x75 area
    image4 = StdImageField(upload_to='path/to/img', variations={'thumbnail': (100, 100, True}) # creates a thumbnail resized to 100x100 croping if necessary

    image_all = StdImageField(upload_to='path/to/img', blank=True, variations={'large': (640, 480), 'thumbnail': (100, 100, True)}) # all previous features in one declaration

<a href="{{ object.myimage.url }}"><img alt="" src="{{ object.myimage.thumbnail.url }}"/></a>
