It is actually pretty different than attachment_fu. It doesn't require it's own model, just a few columns. It is a lot lighter weight. I actually like attachment_fu a lot, but it is a bit slow and it requires either RMagick, Mini_magick or Image Science, all of which are problematic. So I thought I would give it a try. So far, it seems nice, but I haven't really tried it in production yet.

Keith, just curious: How does Paperclip differ from attachment_fu? It seems to have almost the exact same interface - is the only difference that paperclip does not require rmagick, mini-magick or imagescience?

Are you sure Joyent doesn't have RMagick?

I have a couple of Radiant sites there using both my own extensions and Sean's page_attachments with RMagick. Mini_magick does not work there, even if you freeze the gem.

I just discovered Paperclip, . It resizes images without RMagick or Mini_magick, just using the image_magick library itself. I have a prototype extension based on it, though it is not a full fledged gallery like Andrea's.
