I'm working on this very sort of thing (only with video) at the moment.
I've decided to use the comtypes extensions and connect to Windows OS that way.

Hope that helps.

If the fax viewer is a Microsoft product, then it is probably COM aware and using OLE technology will work for your needs. Unfortunately, the comtypes package for python is very new and has very little documentation thus far. Any programmer interested in making this work has much experimenting to do and will soon become the leading expert in that area. If you have made some progress, I'd be very interested in taking a look at your work. For my project, I have decided to switch to C++ extension for all of the OLE video capture (one week solid pounding on Visual Studio 2005 Express to get the DirectShow baseclasses to compile has finally paid off!).

My best recommendation: Find a cheap ActiveX control for viewing the file by googling "free image viewer ocx" and install it in a wxPython window.

ok yes that's helpful. however, if i do this, this will limit my program to only run on the windows platform... is there a way i can make the image open with the default image viewer?

OK. You've modified your initial requirements, so I'll rename this thread. Maybe one or our *nix members will pick up where I must leave off (Window-only knowledge).

Looks like you can get ActiveX on Linux...
