Actually you can work around this problem in your window manager by
selecting an image window and pressing the tab key twice. First to
hide the docks and the second to bring them back. This has the side
effect of raising them to the top of the window stack.
Another way that won't be to everybody's choice is to use focus
follows mouse without autoraise, and use a shortcut to raise windows
to the top.
