The program you want is Irfanview: http://www.irfanview.com/
Unfortunately, it is not available for linux, although people use it
with wine. This thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=3690542
discusses some of the options. Supposedly xv may be the closest thing:
http://www.trilon.com/xv/ but its not free and hasn't been updated since
the 90s except by source patches. Irfanview is free and does exactly
what you want very well, so if you are willing to use Wine or Windows
give it a shot. Hope this helps.
