Question Linux Image viewer with dual/multi monitor support

I need to use dual/multi monitor(s) to present some images,
and I want to show images in the second monitor and browse images in first monitor and select and change the image in second monitor whenever I want.
Is there any Linux image viewer that be able to show images in a separate window other that the window that lists images?

Well I don't see any dedicated image viewers like what you are looking for, but you can accomplish what you want with VLC.

You could set up a playlist of images, or you can set your file browser to right click, open with...

You just have to make sure that VLC is set to not spawn multiple instances, and set the playlist feature to 'play and pause' so the image stays up.
