4) Downloaded and installed rm_install from:

This will install ImageMagick and RMagick with all dependencies.

I originally had downloaded ImageMagick binary and got this error when trying to install RMagick gem:

"Can't install RMagick. Can't find libMagick or one of the dependent libraries. Check the config.log file for more detailed information."
