Wondering is there a way in paperclip to rename images as the are being

image_id+count ?

my code in image.rb model

What i am trying to do is when i want to call back images into array I

could change name of images to be image_id plus count in array as name i
would know that id_1 is large and so on.
has_attached_file :data, :styles => { :large => "371*251>", :small =>
                    :url  => "/assets/:id",
                    :path =>
