That's the very way I also do it. I first copy my photos to some temporary
location and look at each photo using Gwenview. Then I simply delete the
photos I don't want (using the del key). Gwenview is simply much more
convenient to use for this task.
After having rotated (if necessary) and selected the images, I run a script (
http://nasauber.de/opensource/scripts/#date_rename ) against the tmp directory
that renames all images like Number_YYYY-MM-DD_HH-mm and the directory like
[from date]-[to date]--Name.
At this point, I do have the data I really want and then, I move the dir to my
album and let KPA add it.
I think that KPA is not a good tool to select or sort photos, and it's also
not intended to be one (imo). Using Gwenview for this is surely the easier
