In search of a way to resize images using ruby, I was pointed to
http://rubyforge.org/projects/mini-magick/  which looks very promising.
I downloaded the .gem file and it's sitting on my desktop (mac OSX).  I
have never used ruby gems before, and have no idea what to do with it.
Any help here will be much appreciated :)

You will need to install rubygems first - a library for Ruby that
handles package management via gems. Google for Rubygems, read the
manual and go from there. Once you have rubygems setup correctly you
wont need the gem file itself because rubygems downloads it
automagically.
