Awesome gem for uploading and manipulating images (resize, crop, rotate, black & white, etc). The deciding factor for me when choosing this over for instance Paperclip is that different image versions are generated and cached when requested, and not only when uploaded. This makes things like changing the size of a thumbnail a breeze, unlike with other libs where you have to "manually" re-generate the images.
