Are there any image viewers out there that can navigate a truly massive (i.e. 500 megapixel/250MB) JPEG image? Everything but Preview has crashed for me.

Preview does OK, but doesn't have many features.

I'm not sure what your requirements are, Preview always does ok for me. However I heard that Xee is more powerful and some people prefers it.

Xee is the first one I tried, and it instantly ate up all available RAM and crashed. – John Cromartie Jan 23 '13 at 2:41
