ImageMagick display

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.

$ sudo apt install imagemagick
$ display foo.jpg
$ display *.jpg
$ display *
$ display -immutable *.jpg
Space: Next image
Backspace: Previous image
Esc: Quit
/: Rotate by 90 degrees
<: Zoom out
>: Zoom in

Tried with: ImageMagick 6.8.9.9 and Ubuntu 16.04
