We give a brief overview of nonlinear localized modes in photonic crystals. We explain how photonic crystals can potentially be important in making small scale active devices which operate in an all optical way. Two models to approach nonlinear photonic crystals, the coupled mode theory and the discrete lattice theory using a Green's function, are explained.
