Hi all, I'm just starting to learn RoR, and would like to ask a question. I know that we can 'upload' file from local machine and save it to a database. Now, say I have a photo which I store in other website (for example Flickr). This photo obviously has a URL pointing to it, e.g. http://www.flickr.com/username/photoname.jpg. How can I 'save' this photo/file into my RoR application's database ? Thanks a lot for your help, Chris

Have you looked at file upload code and considered if you can hack it to take input from a url instead of from the local file store? Tim C.
