best way to display photos

Some years ago I had the same problem.

I wrote a simple app with pygtk. You get get it from here:
   http://guettli.sourceforge.net/gthumpy/src/README.html
The next pictures get loaded in background. Switching from
one image to the next is faster then in some other apps. But
somehow it is not ready for the public. I guess I am the only
one who uses it.

Flags are symlinks in the home directory .local/share/app/gthumpy. This
means you should not move your images, otherwise the flags get lost.

I don't think it will work on ms-windows, but it could be ported.

Or you use mirage:

It is a pygtk image viewer. You can define shortcuts that execute user defined
commands.
