Please note, this tool is deprecated.
You should better use the successor imageXd.

Image is a command line tool to process and evaluate image data (such as microscopic images). If you have the ImageMagick® extension, you can read and write a variety of data formats (over 200) including PNG, JPEG, JPEG-2000, GIF, TIFF, DPX, EXR, WebP, Postscript, PDF, and SVG. For more information look at Imagemagick®.

If you need more file formats, I recommend to use the tool Bio-Formats.
Alternatively, you can also use Icy, Fiji or pure ImageJ for image analysis.
