When dealing with a long list of tags, dragging the picture onto the desired tag icon, or selecting the tag from a list is tiresome. I suggest to also give the user the possibility to tag the images in a different way, comparable to the way you can tell kmail to move mails to a particular folder: a hotkey (like "t" for tag) brings brings up a dialog where you can type in the name of the tag you wish to set, and the program automatically filters all matching tag names. usually, after typing very few letters you can set the desired tag, much faster than with the current system.
