There is a command tumme, that lets you view thumbnails of all images in a dir. Try it.

In emacs 24.x, tumme is renamed to image-dired-show-all-from-dir.

Or, you can just call image-dired, which will prompt for a dir first.

The generated thumbnails are stored at ~/.emacs.d/image-dired/

emacs tumme
emacs image-dired command showing image thumbnails.

Note: this may not work in Windows or Mac.

It's better to use a real image viewer or view them in desktop. See: Emacs Lisp: Open File in External App. It lets you press one key to open the image in a viewer or desktop.
