Version:           0.9.3 (using KDE 3.5.8, Kubuntu (gutsy) 4:3.5.8-0ubuntu3.1)
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.22-14-generic

When I have a set of images and I already tagged/labeled them, sometimes I find other images that need the exact same tags, or similar enough that it would be easier to start with that set of tags than none at all.

I tried "intuitively" to drag the tagged image over and drop onto the untagged one, which didn't work. This would perhaps also not be intuitive for tagging a group of new images. 

An alternative idea would be to have some sort of "infect" function to propagate the tags of one image to the selection. I am thinking of a colour sampler type of button that would allow the tag/label settings of the current selection to absorb the tags from the sampled image.
