Lots of documentation. The imagemagick suite is a "suite" of commands like
"convert", "display", "mogrify", "animate", and "import"  etc etc 

When in doubt about commands for a recently installed package, try

dpkg -L <nameofpackage> | grep bin

For example:
 $ dpkg -L imagemagick | grep bin

Example:  in a pictures directory do "  display mypicture.png" 
(without the quotes)

 Hope this is helpful.
