Hi Benny!

A quite simple workaround for your use case would be to open the current image 
with e. g. Gwenview via the context menu and navigate through the respective 
folder with the external program.

I'm not sure if this could be easily implemented via KPA: I'm not sure if KPA 
even knows the "neighbours" of a viewed file (specified by the directory 
structure) if you don't select the images via the "Folder" criteria, and the 
search result does not contain the respective files. It could be possible 
though. Perhaps Johannes can say something about if we can and want to 
implement such functionality. I personally never needed/missed this workflow. 

But as always: Patches are always welcome :-)

Let's see. I hope I could at least help you a bit for now?

Cheers, Tobias
