IM used by "producers" (non-developers)?

Post here to shower the ImageMagick developers with praise or discuss how you could have done a better job if you developed ImageMagick. Or talk about how Photoshop is better than ImageMagick. Even complain about how no one answered your postings in the Users forum. Venting and musings welcomed here.

I am curious, is IM used by producers, photographers, motion-graphics-people and such? That use it as a tool in production. Or is it exclusively for the more technical users like engineers, programmers, developers etc?

We get many requests in the Users forum that start with, "I'm not a programmer and know nothing about scripting but I need..."

EDIT: Another thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=29437&p=131758#p131758 reminds me that many people use ImageMagick without realising it, as it is easily incorporated into other products.

I wonder if there are also those that would say something like "I am not a coder, but sometimes I prefer to roll up my sleeves to get better control". Instead of using the common readymade software.
In 3d-production I think its not uncommon that artists/producers are also programmers to some extent - or have programmers working with them.
