Yes, the image is crossed-eye stereo with the left eye on right -- that is 
required in the standard for the simple .jps (stereo JPEG) and .pns 
(stereo PNG) images.  Any standard-compliant software viewer should work 
with those images.  Perhaps you're using a physical device?  Regardless, 
please tell me more about your stereo viewer so I can add appropriate 
support to chimera.
