I'm using Orchard 1.6.1

I know we can implement a mediapicker for editor templates of our custom modules/parts as detailed in this post: http://www.locked.nl/using-the-mediapicker-in-your-own-orchard-module

However, I'm wondering if we can use the media picker in the front-end for custom pages/forms with our own controllers. I want users to be able to upload images and such. Can we use the MediaPicker? Or do we have to implement one ourselves and use Media Services?

Any piece of advise or information would be highly appreciated. Thanks!

No you can't. You'll have to build your own if you want to use it on the front-end.
