Ok, the new version of Kipi plugins gives me a Metadata editor.  That's
exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks for the tip.

However, I'm still not able to apply the tags automatically at import.  As
stated above, I have all of the options under "IPTS Actions" enabled, but
nothing gets applied.  Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong?

I forgot to answer your question about the image format.  These are JPEG
images, taken with a Canon PowerShot S3 IS and transferred via SD card.  I
can't think of any reason why this format would not be supported.
