This is a simple way to embed images in emails, rather than use absolute links, which many clients will not show by default. It has not undergone extensive testing but it should get you started. Comments / suggestions welcome.

from email.MIMEImage import MIMEImage

def email_embed_image(email, img_content_id, img_data):
    """
    email is a django.core.mail.EmailMessage object
    """
    img = MIMEImage(img_data)
    img.add_header('Content-ID', '<%s>' % img_content_id)
    img.add_header('Content-Disposition', 'inline')
    email.attach(img)

Example usage: from django.core.mail import EmailMessage from myproject import email_embed_image

img_content_id = 'main_image'
img_data = ''
open('/path/to/image', 'rb').read()
body = '<img src="cid:%s" />' % img_content_id

email = EmailMessage('title', body, '[email protected]', ['[email protected]'])
email_embed_image(email, img_content_id, img_data)
email.send()
