I suggest doing those tests in the model, not in the controller.  Just
do that fixture thing for the controller spec to pass.  But pass the
same thing in the model.  Here's a sample of how I do it

require File.expand_path(File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../spec_helper')

describe ProductImage do
  before(:all) do
    @valid_attributes = {
      :uploaded_data => fixture_file_upload("100x100.jpg",'image/jpg'),
      :product_id => 1
    @product_image = ProductImage.create(@valid_attributes)

  it "should create a new instance given valid attributes" do
