Please let me know if the following patch is OK:

 (defcustom image-dired-cmd-create-thumbnail-program
-  (executable-find "convert")
+  (when (executable-find "convert") "convert")

I don't understand how these two consecutive patches works.
My motivation is to report more clearly when a necessary
executable is missing.  If i don't have installed "jpegtran"
(image-dired-cmd-rotate-original-program) and i call
i get the message: "Could not rotate image"

Assume I don't have "convert". Before the patches Emacs would complain,
and installing ImageMagick would fix the complaint.
After, Emacs will complain about not finding "convert", but after I
install ImageMagick Emacs will keep complaining, because the defcustom
will still be nil. Is this intended?  Or am I misunderstanding something?
Good point.  I agree is a nuisance having to set those values
after installing the executable.
How about following more simple patch?:
It just check for the required executable at the top of each function
using it; it signals an error if the executable is not found:

Throw and error when the executable used in the function is missing.

Use 'forward-line'.
