After getting the upload part up and running so quick and easily, I’ve had a nasty time trying to get the Image Tools plugin for Grails to work with my application. I tried using the version that’s mentioned in the Grails documentation for the file but kept getting the following error:

Kept getting errors that files were missing and the structure was incorrect. I found out I had to build my own version of the plugin with the code I had checked out. Once I did this everything started to work.
Once that is done don’t forget to import the library before you use it:
