Displays images (PNM, PNG, JPEG, etc.) conveniently from the terminal.
image-view displays images (PNM, PNG, JPEG, etc.) using pygame.
The primary motivation is to support viewing PNM images on OS X. For common image types, Preview works great. For PNM images, Xee works fine for the most part, but it doesn’t work properly when displaying a subset of images from command line. This is important if there are a series of images captured from a camera (captured-00*.pgm), and you want to display a subset of them.
First install the pygame dependency somehow. One option is to use this fork, which avoids X11 on OS X:
$ pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/myint/pygame
Then install the actual program:
$ pip install --upgrade image-view
$ image-view captured-070*.pgm
- Use the left and right arrow keys to navigate through images.
- Use +/- keys to scale the image. Press 0 to reset.
usage: image-view [-h] [--colorize] [--little-endian] [--version] files [files ...] positional arguments: files paths to images optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --colorize color 16-bit PGM images with a rainbow gradient --little-endian interpret 16-bit PGM images as little endian; this is the opposite of Netpbm (and ImageMagick) --version show program's version number and exit
