[KPhotoAlbum] Help with mass tagging?

imgseek appears to be old and I couldn't even install it successfully.

My current cameras don't do GPS, so that won't help either.

I guess I just have to do things the right way and tag them as they come
in. It's the only way to get things completely right anyway.

I imagine that face tagging would be a major enhancement == lots of
work, so I'm not surprised that it hasn't been implemented. If it would
tag the faces of my animal pictures, then that would be something! I
have a lot more of them than people.

Thanks for your attention.
