Anyone up for talking about how to design a model for image uploads? I am exploring ways to model image/media uploads (in a Rails context). I want to do it in a flexible manner though, such that images can be associated with multiple resources. (I think the most challenging way to think about this is a slide/presentation context, where a single slide can have multiple images, but the image doesn’t belong to a slide per se, (the same image can be associated with multiple slides, slideshows, or even appear on a single slide multiple times. i don’t have a specific product in mind…but I am enjoying the thought experiment.
I would love to explore how different projects have approached this sort of problem.
