GQview is a convenient, configurable image browser that runs well regardless of desktop environment, though it does require GTK 2.2. It has a couple of features especially useful in archiving digital camera photos. For example, "auto rename" allows one to rename a bunch of photos at one go. In addition, JPEG images can be easily rotated 90 degrees cw or ccw. Gqview can also call on an external editor such as The GIMP for more complex image editing. It also includes a rather interesting feature, "duplicate finder". If you're looking for a decent image viewer and album program then Gqview might be what you are looking for.
