I really like the light table in digikam because it really works like in the good old analog times. Put some slides on, grab your lens, compare them and discard what you don't like.

This might be an approach (which is currently not possible).
You might want to file a wish in the bug-tracker.

I use the "*" rating for this.

Then all relevant images with >3 stars (use the filter at the bottom)
for this get a new tag (e.g. "Slideshow 2007"),
and furhter refinement can be done be removing (or adding) this tag
from (to) images.
