I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

Hi @PujaBaa Zala

From what I know from trying to do the same you have 2 choices here:

1- You could always store the image data in a temp file in order to be used in your xlwt code.

2- You can use openpyxl as the report excel generator, I successfully done what you need only with that library. I used specifically 1.7.0, I don't know if latter versions remove that feature.


Example of using openpyxl with an in-memory image data

from openpyxl import Workbook
from openpyxl.writer.excel import ExcelWriter
from openpyxl.drawing import Image

from PIL import Image as PILImage
from cStringIO import StringIO
except ImportError:
from StringIO import StringIO

wb = Workbook()
ws = wb.get_active_sheet()

#extra has the data of the image from the database
im = PILImage.open(StringIO(extra))
img = Image(im)

handler = StringIO()
writer = ExcelWriter(wb)
xls = handler.getvalue()
