Have you tried GQview yet? It's great for quickly navigating your porn^H^H^H^H picture collection.

GQview

I did try GQview, actually. In the end, I dropped a few pure image viewers from the article (which is plenty long already) and GQview was one of those.

I use GQview with a hotkey bound to open the image in the GIMP. If the GIMP is already open, it loads it into the existing session, which takes much less than a second on my three-year-old machine.

I also have hotkeys bound to scripted commands for common operations like rotate left, right, etc. I guess if I were really keen I could make some of the commands go through Script-Fu to run arbitrary GIMP operations.

It seems more unixy (in a good way) to have a viewer call a powerful editor rather than having a half-assed editor in the viewer.

Why is it called the Guide to Image Viewers then?

Another vote for gqview. It's fast (in can preload the next image), it has sane and somewhat customizable keyboard bindings, good full screen and thumbnail modes, good auto-zoom settings. Just the thing you need if you have to go through hundreds or thousands of images.

Before gqview I was using xv. I still use it sometimes to generate thumbnail images (which gqview can use). For some reason xv's thumbnail generator is a lot faster than gqview's.
