|Xpdf is a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files... |
The Xpdf project also includes a PDF text extractor, PDF-to-PostScript converter, and various other utilities.
It runs under the X Window System on UNIX, VMS, and OS/2.
The non-X components (pdftops, pdftotext, etc.) also run on Win32 systems, and should run on pretty much any system with a decent C++ compiler. Xpdf is designed to be small and efficient. It can use Type 1 and TrueType fonts.
this one sounds nice but unfortunately only Linux, Unix
|DigiKam is an advanced digital photo management application that makes importing and organizing digital photos a trivial task. Photos can be organized in albums, which can be sorted chronologically, by directory layout, or by custom collections, and they can be tagged, commented, and rated. DigiKam makes use of a fast and robust database to store meta-information, which makes adding and editing comments and tags very reliable. Metadata can also be stored inside pictures using Exif and IPTC. An embedded image editor and a standalone application named showfoto have simple but powerful features for editing your pictures with filters and correction tools.|
& for OSIX, Unix
|Endeavour Mark II is a file browser/file manager with an image browser, a recycled objects system, and an archiver front end.

It also supports disk drive mounting, a fully customizable window appearance, a MIME Types system, and interapplication drag & drop support for KDE and GNOME compatability (although KDE and GNOME are not required).|
