how to install 'convert' utility for images?

Hi, I notice that many linux users are using convert utility for images. I have both version 7.2 and 9 but can't find convert program. How can i add this utility either at installation time or as an upgrade? Thanks, Jim

I think he wanted the commandline rather then GIMP..
I don't like converting things with GIMP much all in all.
Commandline is much more powerful compared to GUIs
