Any lightwight image viewer

Is there any lightwight image viewer which can be launched from the shell?

As GNOME Image Viewer already installed:
cd Image-Folder
ls -l
eog Image-2022.jpg
eog --help

Other packages to be tested:


eog (Eye of Gnome) seems to be the go-to image viewer in Debian-family environments. That is lightweight in terms of functionality.

I haven’t tried the following on the Librem 5 but the imagemagick package gives you the display command, which may be even more lightweight in terms of functionality.

Of course the total resources used by any image viewer depend on the resolution of the image. From that perspective, the imagemagick package also gives you the mogrify and convert commands, which can scale an image down to a lower resolution.
