I have two models, one model girl and one girl_photos (a file upload asset). The only code I have in models which describes the association is: For the girl => belongs_to :girl and has_attached_file :photo For the model girl_photos => has_many :girl_photos and accepts_nested_attributes_for :girl_photos I've tried to save as a nested attribute the photo, it saves the association in the database but it doesn't set the name of the image and doesn't upload it. I thought that it might be a problem with paperclip so I created another test model with no association, just one image upload (in the same model) and it worked fine (it uploaded the images and saved it correctly). In the log file I see the following: INSERT INTO `girls` (`name`, `surname`, `height`, `weight`, `description`, `created_at`, `updated_at`) VALUES ('test', 'test', 'test', 'test', 'test', '2011-05-27 18:31:57', '2011-05-27 18:31:57') INSERT INTO `girl_photos` (`created_at`, `updated_at`, `photo_file_name`, `photo_content_type`, `photo_file_size`, `photo_updated_at`, `girl_id`) VALUES ('2011-05-27 18:31:57', '2011-05-27 18:31:57', NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, 4) [paperclip] Saving attachments. For some reason, on the second query, it saves the photo but it doesn't captures the name and it doesn't upload it. I don't know what else could I try or test. Thank you for your help.

Anyhow confirm this as if the above is as you say, the associations look wrong.

Yes! Sorry David I meant exactly what you wrote and yes my GirlPhoto model has a girl_id. Sorry for the wrong information. I am also using paperclip 2.3.8 and rails 3.0.6. I can't figure out what is wrong, I checked on google and I found a tutorial which is exactly what I have done (the tutorial => http://sleekd.com/general/adding-multiple-images-t...).

If still having trouble would not hurt to post your schema for pertinent models and the model code pertaining to paperclip to see if there is anything not matching up.

It worked. I tried many things and now it uploads my images. Thank you even though I didn't understand what was wrong.

Hi everybody ! This topic is quite old, but since i was confronted to a similar problem, i thought it could help anybody interested in. After consulting the rails API over nested attributes: http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/Ne... , I solved the problem through allowing parameters in the controller. Adapted to the given example, it should go like that : File : app/controllers/girls_controller.rb [...] def girl_params params.require(:girl).permit(:name,:surname,:height,:weight,:description,girl_photos_attributes:[:photo,:id,:_destroy]) end Happy Hacking !
