Try

page.replace_html @photo1.id.to_s, :partial => "replace2"


I do not use .rjs files. I use the inline formating.

def action
if request.xhr?
                  render :update do |page|
                    page.replace_html @photo1.id.to_s, :partial => "replace2"
                  end
                  return
end
end
