I use gqview too.  Or rather, I've now moved to its successor, gthumb. 
Gthumb-2.1.9 is excellent.  It lets you arrange pics in multiple ways:
it has bookmarks for common folders, "catalogues" for virtual folders,
supports per-image comments, and has "categories" so that you can assign
a single image to multiple categories and then use those categories in
advanced image searches.

It can provide histogram and EXIF information for images; has excellent
image navigation and fullscreen mode; supports some image modification,
including simple colour control (auto colour enhance, hue/saturation
balance, brightness/contrast etc.) as well as some more advanced ones
such as desaturate and lossless jpeg rotation; and has basic facilities
for generating html indexes (including the EXIF info if you want) and
contact sheets of images.

Works great for me.
