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
$ dpkg -L imagemagick | grep bin
Example: in a pictures directory do " display mypicture.png"
(without the quotes)
Hope this is helpful.
