The fbida project contains a few applications for viewing and editing images, with the main focus being photos. The applications are:

  • fbi – This is a image viewer for the linux framebuffer console.
  • fbgs – A wrapper script for viewing ps/pdf files on the framebuffer console using fbi.
  • ida – This is a X11 application (Motif based) for viewing images. Some basic editing functions are available too.
  • exiftran – command line tool to do lossless transformations of JPEG images. Works much like jpegtran, but unlike jpegtran it does not ignore the EXIF data 😉
  • thumbnail.cgi – Small and fast CGI script (written in C) to extract EXIF thumbnails from jpeg images and send them to the web browser.
