Digikam does that imo. The advanced viewer, ShowFoto, is loaded with the main 
application, so it loads very fast from within digikam. ShowFoto is also a 
very good image editor, if you dont need to actually paint on your image, it 
is a complete substitute for krita or gimp along with the plugins which 
provides very advanced transformation/manipulation tools. And it is available 
as a standalone application, i use it for all images that needs color 
enhancements or transformations, because it's faster to load and easier to 
use than krita or gimp for such tasks.
