You should be able to, but as the gimp isn't kde software but gtk, the 
file associations aren't likely to be automatic, so you'd have to set 
them up manually.  kcontrol (systemsettings that aren't systemsettings 
but user specific kde settings, so I don't know why they call it 
systemsettings when it's mostly not), common appearance and behavior, 
file associations.  Or select properties on an image file from whatever 
kde file manager, click on the little wrench icon to the right to open 
the filetype config, add the gimp, and set app order as appropriate.  You 
should then be able to at least context-click and select open-with and 
then the gimp, or simply click on the file to open it in the gimp, 
depending on the filetype embedding tab setting and whether the gimp is 
top of the list or down the order chain a bit.
