Imagemagick is handled like an image type, so png and imagemagick are
two different types.  One uses libpng as backend and the other
My point is that only one of imagemagick and libpng will handle png files at a time.
When ImageMagick is available, it supersedes png, jpeg and anything it handles (AFAICS).
If you want to let libpng handle png files, you need to change some defaults 
(imagemagick-filter-types, etc.)

In my experience, libpng is faster then imagemagick.

Ok, that is understandable.
