To customize the paths and urls of paperclip objects in your rails app you need to modify both the :path and :url options for has_attached_file in your models. Here's an example...
class SomeModel < ActiveRecord::Base has_attached_file :image_one, :path => "public/system/:class/:id/:filename", :url => "/system/:class/:id/:basename.:extension" has_attached_file :image_two, :path => "public/system/:class/:id/:filename", :url => "/system/:class/:id/:basename.:extension" end
By default Paperclip will store your files in
/system/:attachment/:id/:style/:filename. By passing the
:url options to the has_attached_file method in your model you can change where the uploaded files will be stored as well as where they can be accessed. The
:path is the directory in your application where your files will be stored. The
:url is the url that users will use to render the image.
