The ideal solution would be to just use an existing free image viewer. You haven't given enough information for us to make any real suggestions, though.

ACDsee, will view any type of image file (even if it is renamed to try to hide the fact that it is an image). It also allows you to view images inside of archives, and icons and cursors inside of DLL's. It is very powerful, efficient and easy to use, but not free. Here are the file types it supports if you are interested:

ANI Windows animated cursor Shows cursor animation
ART AOL ART Still images
BMP Windows Bitmap Windows and OS/2; 2/8/16/24/32 bpp; RLE
and uncompressed
CUR Windows cursor

Can you show me ONE free ImageViewer for commercial use ??? Every freeware (including infranview, acdsee ...) are free only for personal use NOT to commercial. Bye and thank you

Many people who release their software as freeware are willing to make a deal for commercial use. Just consider what would cost the least: writing it from scratch or buying a license.
