    Air Video allows me to use the iPad as video screen by streaming video files from my Windows desktop.

    Is there something similar available but for photographs?

    Simplify Media used to do this, but the a$$holes discontinued their service. (I call them a$$holes because they did this before and came back shortly, making everyone pay again for the same service with a 'revolutionary new UI' that consisted of a reskin.)

    You can try using a service like Dropbox, where you just upload your photo collection and view them on any iDevice using the free Dropbox app.

    any other options?
    File Browser has a bunch of negative comments about crashing when viewing large jpgs. I have a feeling this would affect me as well.

    I use media browser, not having any crashes yet. Handle photos from windows media player too. Not too many features, but does play movie, music and display photos nicely.

    ZumoCast is currently the top end option for media streaming. Lets you do videos and music as well as pictures. And it's free.

    There's Cinq. I'm not crazy about it, but it does a decent job.

    Does zumocast index your files and store content on their server? I'm interested but not in a service that has access to my files.

    You could upload them to picasa and then use a picasa app to view them.
