Partition images (.img), directly mounted under Linux

The offset= part can be calculated with fdisk:

if fdisk -l image.img says Units = ... = 512 bytes and Device=image.img / Start=126, the offset of first partition is then 126*512=32256.

Then it’s simple:

mount -o ro,loop,offset=32256 image.img /mnt/image
