       qiv [options] file ...


       qiv  is  an  image  viewer  developed  with  gdk/imlib.  As  a  result, qiv is faster than
       traditional image viewers such as xv or xli.


       -h, --help
              Print out a brief help message.

       --display disp
              Open qiv window on display disp.

       -F, --file file | stdin
              Read file names from file or stdin, one name per line. This option can be specified
              multiple  times  to  read  from several files, and will not affect other file names
              passed on the command-line.

       -u, --recursivedir
              Change the behavior of qiv to recursively descend into the directories given on the
              command line.

       -L, --followlinks
              With --recursivedir, this allows a symlink to point to a directory.  This is useful
              for organizing photo dirs into categories, but it is up to you to ensure that there
              are no symlink loops that would cause an infinite scan.

       -e, --center
              Disable window centering.

       -w, --fixed_width x
              Window with fixed width x.

       -W, --fixed_zoom x.
              Window with fixed zoom factor (percentage x).

       -x, --root file
              Set file as the current desktop background (centered) and exit.

       -y, --root_t file
              Set file as the current desktop background (tiled) and exit.

       -z, --root_s file
              Set file as the current desktop background (stretched) and exit.

       -m, --maxpect
              Expand image(s) to fit screen size while preserving aspect ratio.

       -t, --scale_down
              Shrink image(s) which are larger than screen size to fit.

       -b, --brightness x
              Set brightness to x (-32..32).

       -c, --contrast x
              Set contrast to x (-32..32).

       -g, --gamma x
              Set gamma to x (-32..32).

       -n, --no_filter
              Disable  filtering of images by extension. Normally, qiv will only load images with
              an image extension such as .jpg, .png, .gif ...  This option lets you load any file
              as an image.

       -i, --no_statusbar
              Disable statusbar.

       -I, --statusbar
              Enable statusbar.

       -p, --transparency
              Enable transparency for transparent images.

       -a, --do_grab
              Grab the pointer in windowed mode.

       -G, --disable_grab
              Disable  grabbing  the  pointer/kbd in fullscreen mode. Useful e.g. if qiv displays
              images on a display other than where it was invoked from. Use with caution!

       -v, --version
              Print version information.

       -o, --bg_color x
              Set root background color to named color x or 24 bit hex RGB triple in  the  format

       -C, --cycle
              Change cycle behaviour. qiv will exit after last picture has been shown.

       -s, --slide
              Start  slideshow  immediately.  This  can  also  be used for the desktop background

       -r, --random
              Randomize slideshow.

       -R, --readonly
              Disable the deletion feature.

       -S, --shuffle
              Shuffle images (random order with next/previous functionality).

       -d, --delay x
              Set slideshow delay to x seconds.

       -f, --fullscreen
              Use fullscreen window on start-up.

       -P, --ignore_path_sort
              Sort all the image files by just their filename, ignoring the path.

       -M, --merged_case_sort
              Sort all the image files in merged-case order (AaBbCc...).

       -N, --numeric_sort
              A "smart" numeric sort that attempts to sort filenames with numbers  in  a  logical
              manner.   For instance: 2.jpg sorts before 10.jpg; 1foo.jpg through 10foo.jpg sorts
              after 1bar.jpg through 15bar.jpg (because "foo" comes after "bar"); and baz0001.jpg
              through  baz0010.jpg  sorts  after  baz01.jpg through baz99.jpg (because the longer
              group of zero-padded digits indicates that they shouldn't be intermingled).

       -D, --no_sort
              Do not apply any sorting to the list of files.

       -T, --watch
              Reload the image if it has changed on disk.

       -A, --select_dir dir
              Store the selected files in dir (default is .qiv-select).

       -q, --rotate x
              Rotate each image 90(x=1),180(x=2),270(x=3) degrees clockwise.  If  x=11  or  x=13,
              the  90  or  270  degree  rotation  is  conditional  on the image fitting better if
              rotated.  e.g. if the display is wide and a tall image is too tall to  fit  on  the
              screen, it will be rotated.

       -l, --autorotate
              Autorotate JPEGs according to EXIF rotation tag.

       -X, --xineramascreen x
              Use monitor x as preferred screen

       -Y, --source_profile x
              Use color profile file x as source profile for all images

       -Z, --display_profile x
              Use color profile file x as display profile for all images

       -B, --browse
              This option is useful when configuring qiv to be used with a file manager. qiv will
              scan the directory of the clicked image and  allow  you  to  scroll  through  those

              Enable movement with h/j/k/l, vi-style (HJKL will do what hjkl previously did)

       qiv doesn't actually delete files. It creates a directory named ".qiv-trash" and moves the
       images to that directory. qiv maintains the directory structure of your "deleted"  images.
       You  can also undelete the most recently trashed images in reverse order, which moves each
       file back into its original directory.  There is a limit to  how  many  deletions  can  be
       undone,  but  it  should  be  pretty large (currently 1024 items).  Sometimes this feature
       might be unwanted. To prevent accidents you can specify the "-R" option  to  disable  this


       With  XFree86  3.3.2+  server, using the wheel is seen as button 4 and 5 pressed. You only
       have to use "IMPS/2" or "Intellimouse" for protocol and add "ZAxisMapping    4 5 " in  the
       "Pointer"  section  of  XF86Config. If imwheel (a program used to emulate key pressed when
       wheel is used for program not supporting wheel), the following two lines must  be  add  to
       imwheel config file :



       Keys  0-9  will  invoke  qiv-command  with  the  key pressed as the first argument and the
       current image filename as the second argument.  qiv-command is not distributed  with  qiv;
       it is to be supplied by the user.  Thus, this feature could be enabled by placing a simple
       shell script such as the following in the command search path (for example, in the  user's
       ~/bin directory):

       # Argument sanity checking eliminated for brevity
       case $1 in
         0|1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9) mkdir -f dir$1; mv "$fname" dir$1 ;;
         *) echo "unrecognized command"; exit ;;

       If  the  first  line  of  the  output  is  like "NEWNAME=xxxxxxx" then qiv thinks that the
       filename of the currently displayed image has changed to this new  name  and  updates  its
       internal filelist.  This is very useful when using qiv-command to rename files.

       Please also see the example that came together with qiv.
