The display program of ImageMagick is useful when you are at the shell and need to quickly view one or a few images. It can also be used to apply many of the image processing operations available in ImageMagick on an image and view it. This viewer is extremely light and great for checking some images quickly on a remote computer over SSH.
- If you do not have ImageMagick, installing it is easy:
$ sudo apt install imagemagick
- To view a specific image:
$ display foo.jpg
- To view all the JPEG files in current directory:
$ display *.jpg
- To display all image files in current directory:
$ display *
- If you know that you will not be changing the images, but just viewing them, then open them in immutable mode:
$ display -immutable *.jpg

Some of the keyboard shortcuts I frequently use:
Space: Next image Backspace: Previous image Esc: Quit /: Rotate by 90 degrees <: Zoom out >: Zoom in
Tried with: ImageMagick 22.214.171.124 and Ubuntu 16.04
