Another "dirty" solution, I use:
I write a shell/perl/... script doing the processing stuff,
I want. And then I register this script in KDE as
application for "MimeType=image/jpeg". This way, my custom
script appears in the "Open With" part of the context menu.

So I select the photos I want to be affected. Click right
and select "Open With -> myAction" from the context menu.

So in the directory "~/.local/share/applications" I added a
file "myAction.desktop".
