``pycicu`` is a tool to upload an image via Ajax and crop it using `Jcrop
<>`_. It provides a simple workflow: first one, using modal,
(by `twitter bootstrap <>`_) the image can be uploaded and cropped.
Second one, you can see the image cropping preview in the form and finally submit the result.

``pycicu`` is perfect when you have to upload images and it's necessary to have a specific portion of image.
It'll be easy to configure and to use.
You can use different configurations, with fixed aspect ratio or minimal image size.

It works with jQuery = 1.8.3 and twitter bootstrap.
