Are you setting IMAGE_PATH to a pathsep-delimited list of directories
appropriate to your OS? This works for me:

  octave:1> IMAGE_PATH (".")
  octave:2> x = imread ("debian-logo.png");
  warning: your version of GraphicsMagick limits images to 8 bits per pixel
  error: imread: cannot find debian-logo.png
