Image previewer for photos?

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knew of some really good image previewer programs (similair to the packaged one that comes with xp in functionality). All I want to be able to do is preview thumbnails of pictures in a directory, or perhaps view the images and be able to forward through other pictures in the directory, back through them, etc.

Any thoughts or ideas on some good software to do this with?

Hi pld!!!

If you have gnome installed, you probably also have gthumb installed.

thanks guys. i'll look more closely at konqueror. i noticed that it does draw the image in the full screen when you try, but i also didnt notice any way to get a thumbnail preview automatically perhaps i just missed it. thanks for the help (once again, and again, and again, and again...)
