I have created a temporary tag (called e.g. "Selected"), and I tag all
photos I want to copy with that tag. When done, I filter on that tag
using "Tag filters", select all and choose "Export"->"Export to remote
computer" to export the selected photos (generally to usb). I guess you
could also delete the tagged photos if you want.
