You could just use dwm with

- an open editor (scripting window for commands)
- an image viewer (like [fm]eh; the image buffer)
- (a terminal to run the script on the imagefile)

The mouse macros/actions would be missing with that approach though.

I was thinking about a simple GUI program displaying images which prints
the dimensions of selections you make with it using a mouse. Those
dimensions could then easily be plugged into ImageMagick for scripting.

Doing image processing using a text-based interface exclusively seems
quite hard. This is one of the rare cases where GUIs and mouse control
actually make the most sense.
