I'm comming late to this thread, but I think the existing ability to
right click and edit an image in Gimp is sufficient.

However, what I find frustrating is that once one image has opened in
Gimp, clicking on Edit Image in the context menu just brings up a
message saying Gimp is already running, and so the image has to be
opened outside of Scribus.

The ability to open more than one image at a time from the context menu
would be very helpful. Or maybe even the ability to drag and drop an
image from Scribus into Gimp (dunno how feasible that is).
