Question How To Use A Thumbnail Reference?

I'm trying to draw a picture of this eye I have saved on my computer for a friend. (the photographer wants me to try and recreate it digitally)

I was wondering: is there a way to make it so the photo I have saved shows up as a thumbnail or a "view" or something on the GIMP window, so I don't have to keep going back and forth between Firefox and GIMP (it becomes a HUGE bother)?

I know you can make a sort of thumbnail of your work that you've got on GIMP (so you can see the entire image, just in case you're zoomed in or something), but is it possible to make a thumbnail of an actual photo to use as reference while I paint?

Thank you so much~ Heart
