I'm not really sure I understand the need for a "skinnable" image viewer. But anyway...

Kuickshow is pretty good if you're browsing through a directory with a lot of images. It will display thumbnails and you can find a particular one fast. It also has slide-show capabilities.

xv is fast, and easy to use. It's a little primitive looking, but gets the job done.

Those are just two that I use. There are many others. Try browsing
FreshMeat to see what else is out there.

if you use framebuffers, look at 'fbi' it's a console image viewer that uses the framebuffer to disblay the image.

Another vote here for XnView....it's fast, light, and rich in creamy features.
