I was wondering if there is such a thing like a text based image editor that allows you to write scripts and apply them on images (photos).

I mean scripts that have commands such as remove color, cut edges, rescale, insert text/image at x y, change saturation, etc.
Basically things that you can do without "WYSIWYG" or a cursor.

Hmm....ImageMagick ?
Not quite an editor, but can do lots of things with images.

As far as I know, Gimp is scriptable. It's not text based, though, but should do what you ask for.

matsu ...

as has been mentioned, media-gfx/imagemagick (or better, media-gfx/graphicsmagick) can be use to process images from within scripts, however the gimp can also be run as a 'server' (using gimp-perl) and so doesn't require a gui ... images are sent to the 'server' which then processes them. Some knowledge of perl is required but a brief tutorial can be found here.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I didn't know that gimp is actually scriptable. I sure will give it a try once I found enough time to go through the perl tutorial.

For the time being imagemagick seems to serve my simple purposes.
Is there a major difference between imagemagick and graphicsmagick?

The differences are right on the main page http://www.graphicsmagick.org/.
