You need Gem as well, if you want to display images. It's an
extension module ("external" in Pd lingo) for Pd. For a start check
out the Pd website puredata.info.

Note that Pd is a very powerful modular system and thus might be a bit
of a mouthful to learn at first. But in the end, all you learn can be
put to use for many other things. 

Btw.: The amazing set ClaudiusMaximus played at the Linux Audio
Conference 2008 also used Pd, for audio and the primitive
visualisation of his live keypresses. It's available here:
