First update to DEL 5.7.2 by running package manager in Digi ESP. Then try the samples provided in Digi ESP.

Check docs Digi ESP -> Help -> Digi ESP for Digi Embedded Linux

If you are on ccwimx53 and DEL you are already on the latest version of Digi embedded Linux.

To display jpeg:
You can use the jpegdec gstreamer element to display still JPEG images in the screen.

Using mfw_v4lsink:

# gst-launch multifilesrc location=/example.jpg ! jpegdec ! freeze ! mfw_v4lsink

Using mfw_isink:

# gst-launch filesrc location=/example.jpg ! jpegdec ! freeze ! mfw_isink

The JPEG images must have a resolution multiple of 16 to work properly with gstreamer's mfw_v4lsink and mfw_isink.

also please check those 2 threads for more info and potential workaround:
