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.
You might also find something suitable at:
I have worked on a commercial Image Database package to help implement similar
