I use GIMP as default editor on all but Windows 10 systems. For some
reason I cannot get GIMP to work/open on Win10, so I use Paint Shop Pro
X4 or X5 as default.
On Ubuntu 16.04 and MATE desktop, I find the needed option at
I tend to do all my image editing out side of LO, as in edit the image
before I use it within the document. If I need to do more editing, then
I go back to GIMP - with the image still queued up - and then reload the
newly edited image. Right now, on the task bar, I have 3 Firefox tasks
listed [with 12+/- tabs listed with them] Thunderbird email, GIMP, Caja
file manager, and a few utility packages. I do not use multiple
Since I use Writer to create posters/signs that do not need an
illustrator package like Inkscape, this works well for me. I make, and
self print, posters/signs up to 13x19 inches [largest page size for HP
Officejet 7000]. When I do larger ones, then I export to PDF and have a
local print shop do those banners.

organizations - sometimes 3 or 4 needed with only a few hours notice.
So, I tend to try to make "things" as easy as possible.

If you do not want to change your system parameters, you can use this
other method which involves a few more steps:
1) Right-click on the image in your document and select Save picture
2) Use an image editor to edit the picture outside of LO
3) Right-click on the image in your document and select Replace
picture. Replace picture should keep the aspect ratio, size, etc so it
will in essence be the same as editing the image in the document.
I hope this helps,
