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
      System/Preferences/Personal/Preferred Applications

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 "workspaces".

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.

Actually I do a lot of posters, signs, brochures, etc. for two local organizations - sometimes 3 or 4 needed with only a few hours notice. So, I tend to try to make "things" as easy as possible.

I use Fedora and I have the same behavior. To change the application
that is used by LO, you must go in your system configuration parameters
and change the default application used for images. In my case,
changing the application from the default image viewer application to
GIMP did the trick, after relaunching LO. Downside to that is if you
use a file viewer and select an image, GIMP will be launched instead of
the viewer.
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,

Hi  : )

I use LO 4.4 and the new Versión:

When I right-click on an image in LO writer and select "Editar con
herramienta externa ..." I am not given the option of choosing a
with which to edit the image. Instead the predetermined image viewer

Where can I configure that I want to edit the image with The Gimp?
Can't find it in Options, Help, the wiki and various searches I've

I use Debian 8.
