For one, whenever you want to interactively adjust sth.  ImageMagick is a
blind flight, with gimp you can more easily change parameters, retry etc..

Also, Gimp might have that "effect of the day" you really need. In this
case ImageMagick simply isn't an option. And the Gimp has _lots_ of
effects ;) The same is true for any script or function that is available
for the gimp but not ImageMagick.

Last not least, ImageMagick can be a memory hog and almost always is
extremely slow in everything. Gimp can be a lot faster, and when you have
to process 20,000+ images that might save a lot of hours.

Well, we'd like to know in what respect ;)
