For one file, I agree. For two or more I disagree: With the current way it is 
implemented, you click on an image, click back, on the next, back, and so on. 
This is especially bad since the iconview (or whatever else you're using) is 
too slow.
Often when I go into a directory full of pictures I don't want to look at only 
one of them. Often I want to step through all/a lot of them. This should 
really be easy with an image viewer. And if we want Konqueror to be the shell 
of this viewer then this got to be supported somehow.

This is not about writing another digikam or kimdaba as a KPart for Konqueror.
