You can show one or more image files by following command:
$ gimv [Image files...]
If you specify one or more directories with a "-d" option, you can show thumbnails of all images under the directory by thumbnail window.
$ gimv -d [Directory name]
If you specify both images and directories with a "-d" option, images are opened by image window, and thumbnails under directories are opened by thumbnail window.
$ gimv -d foo01.jpg ~/ ~/images images/foo02.jpg\ /usr/share/pixmaps/ bar.png ......
If you add a "-t" option, all images are opened by thumbnail window.
