imgViewOn is meant to be your default operating system image file viewer and will open the major image file types (jpeg, png, gif, bmp and several others.) It will quickly display the image file without a border or top menu bar.
After installation set your image files assocations to open with imgViewOn. When an image is opened using imgViewOn you can edit the window/image size with the bottom, right, and bottom-right sides of the window. The window/image will scale depending on the original aspect ratio. Large images will scale down depending on the screen size you are viewing on for better visibility.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install imgViewOn, simply use the following command:
