I've tried xloadimage and its derivative xli. I've had problems with both,
e.g., some options do not work right and many images cause the program to
crash. Imagemagick (or which display is the view app) is incredibly
versatile, but is a memory hog and, worse, it responds very slowly even on a
fast machine. The best I've found yet is feh, now available in unstable. Very
full-featured and seems to work right. It's now my viewer of choice.
