comment Strategy for on-the-fly caching of remote images with Rails 3 + Heroku?
This solution is not great for performance. If you first have to check to see if an image exists in s3 for each image, you're going to see some latency for each image, even when cached. The suggestion to pre-cache is probably a better idea.
