Photo selling application

Hi all,
   i'm doing my first ruby on rails work. I have to build a photo
selling site. A photographer login, upload his photos and sells it.
the photo will be protected in some particular way (i will use tags
for this task).

My first problem is file upload. I want to let the user to be able to
upload more photo at once (100-200). I see active upload, but it will
upload many attachments to a model. My model is a photo, not a generic
attachment. There is a solution other than active upload that i can
use for my task?

thanks in advance,
  nelson

Actually, just from a design perspective (and my using of photo sites), I would strongly recommend one of 3 things for this:
1. Either allow the photographer to upload a zip file with all the pictures in it
2. FTP access
3. Or give him a program (like Picasa) that uploads the pictures in the background from his computer

Just navigating and selecting 100 ~ 200 pictures to upload them is a real pain!

Cheers,
Mohit.
