Because to _crop_ a image in ImageMagick, one would have to open it
in a graphic program, measure the points where he wants the crop to
occur, write down the parameters and then issue the command to do so.

Valmor, if you need 16bpp you should use either Krita or cinepaint.
(Beware that instaling cinepaint may brake gimp-python scripting
