Efficient photo tagging with digikam

By Peter Albrecht.

In the two years that I'm using digikam by now, I always searched for a way to tag the persons on my
photos in a fast and easy way. Now I discovered a fast way of tagging with the keyboard only.

== A) The batch-click way:

Having read the digikam handbook back in 2009 and using the tools, I saw evolve in the GUI, I ended
up with the following way:

1 switch to "thumbnails" view (you have to be able to select more than one image)
2 shift the preview size to the maximum of 256 pixel (you want to be able to recognize the people
on the photos)
3 switch the right side-view to "Caption/Tags" and select the tab "Tags"
4 select picture number one and look at the leftmost person on this picture
