Well, I'm not sure what "type" of image you have imported, but r.in.tiff 
has been used to import aerial photography, scanned paper maps, digital
ortho-photos (converted from jpeg to tiff), etc.

Once in GRASS, these images can be georeferenced to a particular coordinate
system, then your GRASS "toolbox of GIS modules" are at your disposal...   

Hope this answers your question....
