qiv -- Viewing image with transparent background

In Ubuntu, there is a image viewer named qiv which can show image files with transparent backgrounds.

For installation, just type
$ sudo apt-get install qiv

Invoke qiv in command line, and there are many many options to meet most requirements.

To show the image with its transparent background, the argument -p has to be used:
$ qiv -p IMAGE_FILE.png

Below is a screenshot of my own test. Note that the original image was save as png file with transparent background.

Use qiv to show image with transparent background.
