Hi Paul,

You've xv(1) running remotely, displaying back locally over a slow link?
It's probably shipping the decompressed PNG or JPEG over the link to
the X server as a Pixmap;  considerable bloat.  You really need to use a
non-X channel to get the compressed image locally, e.g. scp.  Or
thumbnail it remotely before xv tries to display it.  Or use a coarse
coloured TTY rendering.  A lot of the time the images are superfluous
and don't need high fidelity, high.

Cheers, Ralph.
