ImageMagick is first and formost a batch processing image handling.
That is you can write scripts in shell, perl, PHP, ruby, C, C++ etc to read in and process images then output the results.

While some GUI interfaces are available it is not a GUI driven application.

For basics of using IM from the command line and seeing the results you get visit IM Examples (see my signature).
