GraphicsMagick vs ImageMagick: What are the differences?

What is GraphicsMagick? The swiss army knife of image processing. GraphicsMagick is the swiss army knife of image processing. Comprised of 267K physical lines (according to David A. Wheeler's SLOCCount) of source code in the base package (or 1,225K including 3rd party libraries) it provides a robust and efficient collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 88 major formats including important formats like DPX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PNM, and TIFF.

What is ImageMagick? A software suite to create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap images. It is a free and open-source software suite for displaying, converting, and editing raster image and vector image files. It can read and write images in a variety of formats (over 200) including PNG, JPEG, GIF, HEIC, TIFF, DPX, EXR, WebP, Postscript, PDF, and SVG.
