ps2tiffs extracts the sampled images from a PostScript document. It is not a PostScript renderer. ps2tiffs is a system where the grazer feeds on the output of a PostScript interpreter whose image operators have been replaced by special data-hijacking functions. This has the benefit of allowing the extraction of images regardless of how they have been encoded, formatted, scaled, or squished by the app which generated the PostScript document. It outputs greyscale, RGB, and CMYK TIFFs.
KaiView is a GUI toolkit/framework for writing applications using the TOM programming language. Based on a vector-oriented drawing layer using libart and freetype2, it provides a widget layer with subject/view separation, forms loaded from XML files, live updates to the GUI, Unicode support, abstract manipulator classes, antialiased everything, and a lot more.
Image Alchemy has the ability to convert between over 90 different raster image formats (including all colorspace and compression variations of each format).

It features support for an unlimited number of images and thumbnails, the ability to view thumbnail images by scrolling left or right, a preloader for loading images, and an easy way to add photos, thumbnails, and captions in an XML file.
VisIt is an interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data. Users can quickly generate visualizations from their data, animate them through time, manipulate them, and save the resulting images for presentations. VisIt contains a rich set of visualization features so that you can view your data in a variety of ways. It can be used to visualize scalar and vector fields defined on two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) structured and unstructured meshes. It was designed to interactively handle very large data set sizes in the terascale range, and works well down to small data sets in the kilobyte range.
GridFlow is a plugin for PureData, Ruby, and jMax. It provides the ability to process images and video as N-dimensional arrays ("Grids"). It consists of a framework for grid transmissions, elementary grid processing objects, picture-oriented processing objects, and input/output objects. It also allows one to write plugins for PureData and jMax using the Ruby language.
ChBg is for changing desktop backgrounds in a given period. It can render images with 10 modes (such as tiled, centered, scaled, etc.). It uses Imlib1, Imlib2, or gdk_pixbuf for loading images, so it supports many image formats. ChBg has a windowed setup program, is able to load setup files, can be used as slideshow picture previewer in its own window or as a desktop background, and can be used as screensaver or as an xscreensaver hack. It has a dialog for fast previewing of pictures and very usable thumbnail previews.
