Is there any image viewer (like eog) for linux which can do the following:

Show 2 (3 or 4) images of a directory with maximal possible sizes on one page at the same time. When I click "next", it should show me the next 2 (3 or 4) images of that directory and so on.

Comic viewers (such as Comical, Comix, QComicBook, or cbrpager) usually have a double-page mode.

In addition, Geeqie has two-image modes and a quadruple-image mode. However, the sub-windows seem to be independent of each other (when you change one, the others don't change).

Try GwenView http://gwenview.sourceforge.net/overview

Picasa is also now available for Linux to download Picasa http://picasa.google.com/linux/

Thanks. Could you describe how to do in gwenview what I want? – student Dec 3 '11 at 13:14
gwenview.sourceforge.net/screenshots.php?action=view&album=/… Just use zoomin and zoomout at the right below of the window – Nikhil Mulley Dec 3 '11 at 14:21
That zooms maximal to 256x256 for me, that's to small. – student Dec 3 '11 at 15:09
may be picasa then? I have not tried gwenview more extensively as such before either. – Nikhil Mulley Dec 3 '11 at 15:14
Same problem with picasa – student Dec 3 '11 at 15:24
