Ideas concerning the application image viewer GPicView:
I find Geeqie
to be the nicest one to use, easy to use, switch between modes, and
navigate. It is a slightly improved version of gqview. This may not be
especially lightweight, but and I find it worth using an extra 2MB of
RAM or so to have a much more usable package. (And it's small compared
to fully featured browsers and other packages I use
I heard that there is another version of gqview which also
handled videos, for an integrated media program. Unfortunately they
named it pornviewer. It might have some good code though.
