Haskell is a wonderful language, so I hate to say this...but personally I
don't see the benefit of using Haskell here, unless the manipulations you
want to do are very complex.  Some simple shell (or
perl/python/ruby/whatever) scripts to glue together some calls to convert
(or possibly other ImageMagick utilities) ought to do the job just fine.
