I use FastStone for this.  The array is five across at the thumbnail
size I have it set for, but down is the entire file that's opened.

Double-clicking opens the image in full screen.  Individual images can
be moved to a different order when re-numbering to present the files
in a different order is desired.  The images can be tagged so certain
images only can be displayed, and side-by-side comparisons of two or
more images can be set.  There are several other handy features.

The program is free.  FastStone Image Viewer 6.4 at

I have Lightroom and Bridge, but often do my initial sorting in
FastStone.  It accepts most types of files from RAW to jpeg.
