Example model:

class MyModel(models.Model):
    file = RemovableFileField(upload_to='files', \
        null=True, blank=True)
    image = RemovableImageField(upload_to='images', \
        null=True, blank=True)

A delete checkbox will be automatically rendered when editing such a model using form_for_instance.

UPDATED version which works with ModelForms
