# Open images from AUCTeX with your favourite image editor

Suppose I edit a LaTeX-file with AUCTeX and the point is on a \includgraphics{myimage.jpg} line. Is there a possibility in AUCTeX to open myimage.jpg with my favourite image editor, say gimp by just pressing a keyboard shortcut?

Do any of the answers work for you? – Sean Allred May 19 '15 at 19:55

This is really more of a general emacs question. What you really want is a way of linking from file-names in the buffer text to an external program. You may have to play with it to get it to work, but I'm guessing that gimpedit.el would be able to do this.
