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.
