It would be good if you could add a OARS definition on the appdata.xml there's some stuff out there like flathub that enforces having one.

Would it make sense to make File->Add Images also accept folders in addition to individual files?

I'd suggest using KStandardAction::preferences to create your configure action, so you get the default icon all apps get,  same for KStandardAction::quit i guess.

It's not mandatory, something for the future maybe? but i think it'd be nicer if you make your app use kxmlgui, so you don't have to create your own KHelpMenu by hand, and you get one one those configure shortcuts by free, etc.

You have a few signals marked as const, that is a bit weird

You also have a few methods marked as virtual and override, which is also a bit weird, since all overriden methods are virtual, so you don't need the virtual to be specified.
