Was our grumpy author aware of the "display" program?

I certainly was not and at first glance it seems to fit the bill.

I went to /usr/share/wallpapers and typed "display *png &" and after about a minute I am happily cropping, resizing, and tweaking colours. I can also merrily spacebar my way through the directory. Just left-click on the image and I think you will find much more than a scripting interface.

Obviously I have not spent a lot of time on it but the quality looks ok to me.

I was almost ready to go off and program "lwnedit" but now I think it would be a waste of time.

I believe that the "display" you are talking about is
actually the graphical user interface to the
ImageMagick package of utilities, such as it is.
One can certainly criticize some usability features of
display, but I also wondered why it wasn't mentioned in
the context of ImageMagick's dismissal in the article.
