Magento allows us to create custom form in admin panel by creating our own custom module. We can create almost any field in the admin form by creating a class that extends the base class Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Form. The _prepareForm method allows to define our form elements.

$fieldset->addField('filename', 'image', array(
'label' => Mage::helper('customform')->__('Image'),
