Is there a way to view pictures that are inside a compressed file (suppose .rar) withour having to extract all them? Example: when i open a certain rar file that contains pictures, if i double click any picture, "Image Viewer" opens the picture normally, but i am not able to navigate (with the arrows) to the next picture. I have to close that one, and open the next one again. Is there any software able to do this?

OK, mouting the ZIP or RAR or Tar file with "archive mounter" seems to be it! But there is a problem: if the file is password protected, Archive Mounter crashes. Submiting the Bug right now.
