Best way of storing attachements/images

I’m building a webshop and i’m stuck with a specific task. I’m using
rails.

I have a form for adding a new product. In the form there’s a portion
for image upload.
I want to provide my client with a way of adding images to his product
and returning to the same folder with the fields he’s filled in still
filled in.

Form -> Add image -> Returns to the form displaying the images that
will be added to this form.
Form -> Submit -> Saves the product and the images.

I’ve looked at both file_column and acts_as_attachement plugins but
it’s the specific form re-view that I don’t know how to solve.

Thank you in advance.

I’m not sure if Iunderstood you correctly… anyway if what’s you’re
trying to achieve is to upload images without clearing/resetting the
form via page reload, try using ajax to add images to the form (see
e.g.
http://api.rubyonrails.com/classes/ActionView/Helpers/PrototypeHelper.html),
and “normal way” to select one of them afterwards.

Maybe you’d ask directly on rails list
(http://lists.rubyonrails.org/mailman/listinfo/rails) - they’ll
probably know better.
