How to open ImageMagick

I have Suse 9 and after a look in Yast saw that the program ImageMagick was installed on my computer. Running the command “whereis ImageMagick” in the console I was searching for the executive-file. I got one hit: /usr/share/man/man1/ImageMagick.1.gz but no hit for the executive.
I ran the command “ImageMagick” in KDE and also in GNOME but nothing happens.

So my question is:
What is the command and
Where is the executive-file

The executables are a series of scripts (found in /usr/bin on RH9). If you type:

man ImageMagick

you'll see this description (and more!):

ImageMagick provides a suite of commandline utilities for creating,
converting, editing, and displaying images:

Display is a machine architecture independent image processing and dis-
play program. It can display an image on any workstation display run-
ning an X server.

Import reads an image from any visible window on an X server and out-
puts it as an image file. You can capture a single window, the entire
screen, or any rectangular portion of the screen.

Montage creates a composite by combining several separate images. The
images are tiled on the composite image with the name of the image
optionally appearing just below the individual tile.

Convert converts an input file using one image format to an output file
with a differing image format.

Mogrify transforms an image or a sequence of images. These transforms
include image scaling, image rotation, color reduction, and others. The
transmogrified image overwrites the original image.

Identify describes the format and characteristics of one or more image
files. It will also report if an image is incomplete or corrupt.

Composite composites images to create new images.

Conjure interprets and executes scripts in the Magick Scripting Lan-
guage (MSL).
