Re: [PLUG] selecting images

Using gThumb will handily address this.  Use the "Collections" feature.  gThumb keeps your files in their original locations and uses a set of external files to manage the collection.   By adding your favorites into a favorites collection you will keep all of your originals in tact while creating a file (found in ~/.gnome2/gthumb/collections) which lists each filename and filepath in a text file name <collectioname>.gqv.

You can easily create successive filtered collections without ever having duplicated or moved the original files.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
