This will be very easy to do in 0.2.0, where you'll be able to right click on an image in the Book Browser and open it in an external editor.
But right now, this is a bit difficult. Pdurrant gave a very good and simple way of doing this.
The image files are located in the "<SigilTempFolder>/scratchpad/<BookUUIDFolder>/OEBPS/images". The path to "<SigilTempFolder>" is "<UserHomeFolder>/My Documents/Sigil" on Windows and "<UserHomeFolder>/.Sigil" on Unices like Mac OS X and Linux (notice the dot in the folder name). The next
version of Sigil will use "<UserHomeFolder>/Sigil" (no dot) on Windows.
Do be very careful if you're editing the files in the book's folder. If you screw something up, you could crash Sigil. You're not really meant to mess around in that temp folder.
