rpi-imager --repo

Clicking on CHOOSE OS allows you to select the version to flash:


After that you can select and SD card and click on WRITE to flash the image to an SD card. Maybe there’s a way to get info-beamer to be included directly within the official OS selection. I’ve opened up an github issue about this.
