Under Linux, I've used kuickshow, display & gwenview.

It's a bit trickier under Windows, but one option may be a lightweight web
browser? That should be able to render an image quickly & easily.

I have worked on a commercial Image Database package to help implement similar
functionality in a java application, using UMN mapserver & mapscript which does
pretty well, and I think could easily do what you want, but it depends how much
of a ready made solution you want, vs being able to develop your application
from appropriate tools.
