Your question is too ambiguous to answer as it stands. Please
elaborate: what to you want to have happen?

Just what I said, create a thumbnail of an image on the server on the
fly, without having the thumbnail on the server.

Wouldn’t is make a lot more sense to generate the thumbnail when the
image is made available to the web application instead of wasting the
time recreating one every time the image is viewed? This is how
Paperclip is designed to work.

What am I missing here?

Good point. This is the solution I have today. I was just wondering if
it could be done. But as you said, it might not be too smart when
serving a list of images.
