catimg ā€” fast image printing in to your terminal

Synopsis

catimg [options] image

Description

catimg is a little program written in C with no dependencies that prints images in the terminal. It supports JPEG, PNG and GIF formats.

Options

-h

Prints a help message

-w WIDTH

Specify the width of the displayed image, by default catimg will use the terminal width.

-l LOOPS

Specify the amount of loops that catimg should repeat a GIF. A value of 1 means that the GIF will be displayed twice. A negative value implies infinity.

-r RESOLUTION

Possible values 1 or 2. Force the resolution of the image. By default catimg will check if rendering in higher resolution is possible and do so or use the lower one.

-c

Convert colors to a restricted palette. This is useful when terminal only support a limited set of colors. This transformation should be more accurate than the one performed by the terminal.
