Image from my camera (i use PS3Eye camera and uvc_camera package) is only visible in rqt_image_view, but not anywhere else, what can i do about this?

It sounds like your camera and rqt_image_view are working. Can you describe the other programs you're trying to use that aren't working, how you're using them, and what you expect?

I am trying to use rviz, when i choose a topic with image (i know for sure it's the correct one),rviz just says that there is "No Image Received"

OK, so it works if i use "Image" display type, but doesn't when i use the "Camera" one

The rviz Camera display requires that you set up TF to publish the transform between your rviz fixed frame and the camera's frame_id.

See #q240705 for a more detailed explanation.
