console-only freebsd

I have a freebsd 11-stable installation on a (gutless) netbook. What I'd like 
is full functionality via the console[1]. One of the things it needs is some 
graphics capability but without xorg. So I'm thinking, svga or libSDL. 
For example, let's say to view a jpg file. If this is possible from the console, 
what program or port would one use to view a gif or jpg file?

[1] by console, I mean the consoles accessed via alt-f1 to alt-f7 [2]
[2] can the number of consoles be increased?

many thanks,
