I'm using file_column to store mulitple versions of an image in a custom directory "images/artwork/" with the :store_dir option. This is working fine for uploading and storing the images, but whenever I try and access the images with the url_for_file_column helper it keeps generating the default path. I thought it would replace this by default, but it doesn't seem to. I can hand code these in, but it seems a bit wrong and it feels like I must missing some crucial url_for_file_column option. I can't see any reason why you would want to set a custom :store_dir if it isn't used by the helpers! maybe it's a bug that needs fixing... anyone else had this? -- I do things for love or money

I agree that it would make a lot more sense for file_column to default to using the the store_dir as the base_url but it doesn't. just put this in your declaration :base_url => 'mages/artwork' and you should be in the money.
