To install :
sudo yum install feh
From the info for the feh package:
feh – versatile image viewer works from command line too
premier image file handling library. feh has many features,
from simple single file viewing, to multiple file modes using
a slideshow or multiple windows. feh supports the creation of
montages as index prints with many user-configurable options.
One of the reasons, I install feh as one of the first packages on any installation is the reason that it can open multiple images like in stack. To make things even more simpler I create a alias like this:
alias v=’feh -p –scale-down -Z -r ’
with this alias in place I can go to any directory in bash and just type ”v *” to see all the images 🙂
Some good things you can do with feh are :
Have a theme or naming for option groups. You can have the name for option groups in $HOME/.fehrc or /etc/fehrc. If none exists then you can create one and then make a entry like below
amit -p –scale-down -Z -r
and then use
feh –theme amit *.jpg
feh -Tamit *.jpg
In my default install for feh, I have couple of entries which look quite interesting:
# Webcam mode, simply specify the url(s).
# e.g. feh -Twebcam http://cam1 http://cam2
webcam –multiwindow –reload 20
# Create an index of the current directory. This version uses . as the
# current dir, so you don’t even need any commandline arguments.
mkindex -iVO index.jpg .
# More ambitious version…
imgidx -iVO .fehindex.jpg –limit-width 1200 –thumb-width 90 –thumb-height 90 .
# Show a presentation
present –full-screen –sort name
# Booth mode 😉

# Add tags to your html with ease 🙂
