    Step-1 Install the Web LinkedIn module.
    Step-2 After that custmozie .py(Python file) file:
    In below example, I have custmozied .py file. You can directly copy the below python code in your .py file.

    import openerp
    import openerp.addons.web
    from openerp.osv import fields, osv
    class Binary(openerp.http.Controller):
        @openerp.http.route('/web_linkedin/binary/url2binary', type='json', auth='user')
        def url2binary(self, url):
            """Used exclusively to load images from LinkedIn profiles, must not be used for anything else."""
            _scheme, _netloc, path, params, query, fragment = urlparse(url)
            # is the master domain for LinkedIn media (replicated to CDNs),
            # so forcing it should always work and prevents abusing this method to load arbitrary URLs
            url = urlunparse(('http', '', path, params, query, fragment))
            bfile = urllib2.urlopen(url)
            return base64.b64encode(
    class web_linkedin_settings(osv.osv_memory):
        _inherit = 'sale.config.settings'
        _columns = {
