Then I delete the buffer, returning to my browser, and start editing
the image from there.

Starting the editor from the image buffer would be quite inconvenient
since then I would get an inconsistency between displayed buffer and
file on disk, requiring me to fiddle with revert-buffer and similar

It would be also quite unusual if I called an image _editor_ that I
would require to display the image _afterwards_ again with Emacs.
Most image editors should be better at displaying an image than Emacs.

So killing the buffer would be a natural thing to do, anyway.
Postponing that until after the image edit is just asking for trouble.
