No. As in a file-manager changing the folder or opening an image in an 
embedded viewer will clear the selection. In order to not have to preview the 
images you can increase the thumbnail size via the slider at the bottom right 
of the digikam window.

What you could do is tag your images with e.g. "Selection1" and then use 
digikam to sort by tag. That way you will have all the "Selection1" images in 
a group.
