Can I Use Paperclip AND Carrierwave in my app?

I installed Paperclip so each user can now upload a logo image file. Now I want to allow each user to upload 2 static images for their profile page. If I install CarrierWave for these static image uploads using Amazon S3, will this conflict in any way with my Paperclip install? Should I be using one or the other solely in my app? The reason I ask is that I'm questioning the complexity if I need to go back and convert Paperclip to CW for my logo image file uploads. I'd rather keep it all in place if it's fine to do that. The only thing that might come up later is that I would allow users to upload 4+ static images instead of just 2. (note: these static images are completely separate from the product listing images). Thanks!

I don't see why you would need both carrierwave and paperclip. Both gems have pretty similar functionality, so I'd recommend using one or the other (but not both) for all your image attachments. Having one less gem will also make it easier for you to keep track of configuration-related bugs.
