In version 3.3 (from OpenSuSE KDE 4.11 repository), I can select multiple 
images and then start the layout tool, or drop extra images on the canvas. 
I didn't try dropping them on the image list.

For moving, rotating or scaling, you'll have to select the proper tool in 
the right-hand tab. To pull an image to foreground, move it to the top of 
the image list (small arrows just above the list, or right mouse click).

The tool still feels rather rough, but it's much easier to use than GIMP or 
imagemagick for the job it does. Most of the rough edges are probably from 
a lack of documentation, but I hit one real bug: I added a border, and then 
tried to add a second border => segfault and Digikam closed. (I'll report 
it later as a bug, after a bit more testing, and seeing if I can get a 
proper backtrace)
