+ImageMagick must be installed and Paperclip must have access to it. To ensure
+that it does, on your command line, run `which convert` (one of the ImageMagick
+utilities). This will give you the path where that utility is installed. For
+example, it might return `/usr/local/bin/convert`.
+Then, in your environment config file, let Paperclip know to look there by adding that
+directory to its path.
+In development mode, you might add this line to `config/environments/development.rb)`:
+ Paperclip.options[:command_path] = "/usr/local/bin/"
