Correct, although a properly configured printer system of any kind (lp, 
lprng, cupsys) should be able to handle most image types already.

Agreed, Gimp is a wonderful tool, but definitely overkill if you just want to 
view them.

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!)

I'm sure there are many more, but the above are what I use regularly.  Anyone 
else with suggestions?
