If you're a console guy (and have framebuffer set up), fbi is a cool program
to just view a picture without having to start X.
kview, or konqueror if you run KDE. xv is simple and nice (though I haven't
seen it in unstable lately.) And gqview is awesome if you have a large
collection of images you want to view/organize. (It even manages collections
and supports finding of duplicate images!)
