s3 = S3Storage()

class Car(models.Model):
 ...
 photo = models.ImageField(storage=s3)


Other settings.py options

Using

Default Django file storage

If set as default file storage - check for right set DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY in project settings.py.

Manual S3Storage using

If need to using manually - you can direct set bucket_name (as BOTO_S3_BUCKET), key (as AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID), secret (as AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY) and location (as BOTO_BUCKET_LOCATION) on storage instatiation:

from boto.s3.storage import S3Storage

s3 = S3Storage(bucket='another-bucket', key='another-key',
 secret='another-secret', location='EU')


S3Storage - it's tipical Djago storage system, only path is not implemented and created_time and accessed_time return same value as modified_time.

Upload shortcut

For simple uploading you can use shortcut:

from django_boto.s3 import upload

upload(filename, prefix=False, bucket_name=False, key=None, secret=None)

where:

filename
 string filesystem path to file or django File instance or python file object instance;
prefix
 string path prefix to filename in s3.amazonaws.com url. Like filename /images/image.jpg with avatars prefix convert to avatars/image.jpg in amazon url;
bucket_name
 name of bucket (if not exists - system try to create it) in amazon S3;
key
 AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID replacement;
secret
 AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY replacement.

It's retun URL for direct file download.

Last four options are optional. If not set - it takes from settings.py or used defaults.
