The FIM (Fbi IMproved) Universal Image Viewer, in a Nutshell

FIM (Fbi IMproved) is a "swiss army-knife" image viewer. It runs under the Linux Framebuffer, under X11 (SDL and now also GDK), or in text terminals (ASCII Art, also coloured), with a consistent interface and with many powerful features. FIM is known among enthusiasts of Raspberry Pi and other minimalistic computing devices, but also among VIM/Emacs users seeking functionality, configurability, and flexibility behind a minimalistic interface styled after VIM and Emacs. This short talk introduces FIM, its philosophy, and how the GTK graphical mode makes it more user-friendly.
