Oke.... I have imagemagick installed... but cant find a start-button or
something. I guess its not a executable program like firefox/gimp etc?

You tell me that i have to type the above.

But where? In the main console???? 

Should i first direct to the map containing the images?

If yes... tell me.

I'am (still) new to Linux and dont have the console into my hands.
Mouse is more my way :P
