Well, their missing support for proffesional photographers does not make the 
organizer bad.

There, the selection you want to work on is the main part of the screen, while 
the images you select from is a bottom bar of thumbs, which can be anything - 
an album, a gallery, a upload batch, etc.

In digikam language, any sort of collection, from the left sidebar,  could be 
a source for adding images to the temporary selection, and any changes from 
the right sidebar could then be applied.

There must be some UI considerations on how to get that right inside digikam, 
but it surely would be nice.
