I'm looking for a program to view my photos but I'd like to see at once:

  1. original photo
  2. grey preview
  3. sepia preview

So, at first, I have a list of thumbnails of images in a folder. Then when I click (or double click) an image I see preview of this image as is and in the sidebar the same preview but greyscaled and sepia (both smaller).

Main usage: browsing photos taken and see if one photo looks better as grey or sepia.

I don't need any editing capabilities. Saving grey or sepia version as a new image would be a nice feature. Image file manipulation (especially delete a file) would me nice feature but not required.

Currently, I use XnView and this is more than enough for me to browse images except it does not have the grey/sepia preview.

The software would be for home (private) use. Thus, I'd prefer it for free or very small fee (like 10 $) with a trial period.
