Hi John -

In general, use the GIMP for working on images by hand, one-off 
stuff, retouching, and anything that needs your keen eye and 
steady hand every step of the way.  Use ImageMagick for all the 
batch stuff:  mass conversions from one image format to another, 
creating a bunch of thumbnails, etc.  It is possible to use the 
GIMP in batch mode, but it's usually not The Right Tool.  On the 
other hand, ImageMagick isn't really good for hands-on image
