We will be using a Python package called pillow which will let us interact with images in Django.
This is not a Python and Django beginners course so having some working knowledge of Python and Django as well as HTML and CSS will help you better understand what is going on as we build the project.
We will begin by setting up a Python and Django Development environment for Windows and MacOS and the proceed with creating a Django project and Django App. This will be followed by creating a model for our app which will create a database and table in the default Django SQlite3 database to store our images and text fields . We will create a Django super user account and you will learn how to interact with a model from the administrative interface of Django. We will also create routes for our app and templates.
