Watching some jpg with 16 million colors on STE is not best idea - will look awful.
Maybe there is some SW what can do it without conversion to usual Atari formats as Degas etc. But it will work very slow.
What's the point in this ?

Best is to use Degas or Neochrome format. PC SW can convert to.

pcsview can do the job for .pcs

There are many many files formats the ST can deal with, so many many tools available.. Depends of what files you want to open/convert of course

AIM, GEMVIEW, Speed of Light, Pixel are few examples..
