Uploading images

I am building an e-commerce site and would like to give my users the
ability to upload images. What is the best way to do this?

What other features should I offer in uploading images? image
manipulation…etc.?

manipulating images = rmagick http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/

uploading images = RTFM, google or your favourite ror book :slight_smile:

Hi, i would recommend you Rick Olsens attachment_fu in combination with
RMagick if you want to manipulate your pics.

Just take a look here:

Best wishes,

If you want to upload a file with a progress meter you can use mongrel
upload http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/upload_progress.html . If you
follow the instructions it not that hard to get it running. Though you
will be tied into mongrel if you want the progress bar to work.

Other features you may want are
Allow multiple file uploads. I dont know of any plugins that allow
this.
Image resizing,
thumbnailing,
max image size upload before the image is downloaded. Check the
CONTENT_LENGTH in the mongrel handler.
image type limitation.

rmagic works well for image manipultion.
