You type it in a terminal (or console or konsole) window. There's an icon on both Gnome and KDE that looks like a computer monitor. That's the console. Open that to type it in. To change directory use the cd command, to list a directory contents type 'ls' (that's LS in lowercase), to move back a directory type cd .. (cd with two periods after it). To run programs just type their name. If you start typing a name then press tab it will fill it out or make suggestions for you. To load the gimp in the console you just type 'gimp'. To display an image in imagemagick type 'display myimage.png' (where myimage.png is the image you want to load).

I'm guessing you downloaded the Windows version...that will do you no good. There is a Linux version of the program available at the same website.

Another option is to use "convert", which is included in the ImageMagick package (maybe already installed on your system). Check for its presence with "which convert" or "type -p convert". If it's installed, type "man ImageMagick" for info. Convert is a commandline application that reads many image file types
