On the Macintosh platform, GraphicConverter provides that 
functionality.  It is shareware, but very cheap, and has been under 
constant development for, oooh, over a decade.  The author, Thorsten 
Lemke, readily provides support. </end-advert> :-)

Hi Bruce,

	You could force the browser to display the image at a small 
preview size by giving explicit width and height dimensions, and 
include the image within a link to itself so that it can be viewed 
full-size or downloaded.  For example:

<a href="large_image.gif"><img src="large_image.gif" width="320" 
height="240" alt="Big image - click to view full-size or 

(That should be one long line - I hope the system doesn't apply 
confusing line-wrapping.  But of course extra line-splits are treated 
just as any other white-space by HTML viewers, so it makes no 
difference if the line is split.)
