I had a problem that, after cropping, all my styles were gone (all the cropped images had the same size). Before applying the cropper processor, they were sized correctly.
Solution was, if you apply a custom processor, processor :thumbnails isn't executed anymore, so you'd have to write
:processors => [:cropper, :thumbnails].
Hope that saves someone some googeling.
