Using the FIM (Fbi IMproved) Universal Image Viewer

A scriptable and highly configurable, yet minimalistic image viewer for X, the Linux framebuffer, and Ascii Art, for command line users

FIM (Fbi IMproved) is a `swiss army-knife' image viewer. You can use it under the Linux Framebuffer, under X, or in text terminals (ASCII Art), with a consistent interface and with many powerful features. Whether for occasional image viewing, creation of tagged pictures collections, tailoring short and specialized scripts or custom actions, or viewing graphics on a Raspberry Pi, there are many situations where the unique features of FIM make the difference. FIM grew out a fork of the FBI image viewer, and its name is inspired by the VIM text editor. This talk will tour peculiar use cases where FIM shines.
