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?
