Here is an example of using IM to compare 2 images, in
this case, images from a webcam:

 http://www.notbig.org/bin/webcam.sh.txt

Note the command that begins with 

  differ=$(composite 

which first compares 2 images, then ignores minor
color variations, converts the pixel comparison to
text, and then manipulates the text as needed.

I don't really understand what you are trying to do,
but this sample of IM make be helpful for image
comparisons.
