I imagine a layout like below would be useful and intuitive:

      +--------+     +--------+
      | THUMB  |     | THUMB  |
      |        |     |        |
      +--------+     +--------+
      filename1.jpg  filename1.jpg
      [1600x1200]    [1600x1200]

where [1600x1200] is a link to the full size version.

All thumbnail programs I encountered so far display as minimum the file
name, size and image dimensions.

Well.  As the first step, I've added the support for displaying thumbnails
directly in the dired buffer.  The command `tumme-dired-insert-marked-thumbs'
is bound to `C-t C-t' and when invoked on the marked files adds thumbnails
to the dired buffer.  It also takes care of relocating thumbnails after
refreshing the dired buffer or changing the sorting order with `s'.
