A revision to the blog post sited by @dlemstra has the easiest solution I've found for this:
In VS2013/2015, go to Tools --> Options --> Projects and Solutions --> Web Projects and select "Use the 64 bit version of IIS Express for web sites and projects."
There seems to be a problem when running the 64 bit version of Magick.NET in Visual Studio 2013's IIS Express. You need to set a registry key according to the following answer 'High quality JPEG compression with c#'. You could set this flag or switch to the AnyCPU version of Magick.NET.
Make sure redistributable C++ package is also installed.
Make sure you have installed Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio
.NET 4.0: Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (x64 or x86) .NET 2.0: Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2008 (x64 or x86).
