Default NOT a slideshow...

I've been asked to scan 200 or so images for someone who wants to be able to share the image files around the rest of his family. This person would like to be presented with the files in such a way that he can view thumbnails in a convenient way and maybe select particular images to view full size.

He is adamant that he does not want a 'slideshow' type presentation and so I'm looking for some software that I (or he) could use to do the job.

I wondered if was something that he could install on his own machine, but then it would need to be cheap - or, better, free - so that he could avoid abuse from the rest of the family who would also have to buy and/or install it on their machines...

...alternatively, might there be something I could use in order to present him with a free-standing solution? Would it also allow for the addition of more images at a later stage?

He never mentioned any need to index or catalogue the files (although he did talk of an eventual total of 2000 or so) so I'm assuming that that is not an issue.

When he first put the enquiry to me, I felt sure that there would be a simple solution and now I'm hoping I haven't dug myself into a bit of a hole when a more cautious approach might have been more sensible...;-(

Any suggestions would be welcome - many thanks!
