Exaile is a pretty decent music player for GNOME written in PyGTK which comes with features like tabbed playlists, lyrics fetching, radio support, file browser, support for dynamic and smart playlists, cover support, 10-band equalizer and more. The latest version was released a few days ago and comes with several bug fixes and minor issue fixes.

This article overviews five image viewers available for Ubuntu and also includes at the end a list of another five which either are no longer maintained or are based on older libraries (KDE3 for example). Update: Two more viewers have been added, PhotoQt and Berry, increasing the number of viewers to 12.

In my opinion this is probably the best image viewer available at the moment. Built for KDE4, Gwenview comes with support for virtually all image formats out there, tools to do basic editing, tree-like file browser, support for tags, thumbnail previews, cropping, image rating system, slideshow, fullscreen mode, support for plugins and two view modes (Browse and View). An overview is available here.

sudo apt-get install gwenview
