Need program for tagging pictures

I'm looking for a program that allows me to tag pictures as I scroll through
them. For example, I download 250 pictures to a folder on my hard drive.
As I look through them using XP's pic and fax viewer (or other program), I
want to tag the ones I want (as possible "keepers") and have them go
directly to a "final" folder, or just be accessible as a group after I'm
finished with the first pass. Or, simply tag them as I look through them,
and be able to come back afterwards and extract the tagged ones for
import/export, cd burning, photo editing, etc. Basically, I want to
identify the good ones on the first pass (and subsequent passes), without
pausing to send them to a folder or save them under a different name, etc.



I don't want to delete anything at this point, and my choices might change
as I scroll through, so I don't want to have to move pictures as I go.
Basically, I want to make selections on the fly, then be able to pull up
only the selected pics for another pass. But I'd like the option of not
having to move any files as I go. For example, as I scroll through and come
to a picture I like, I could hit a "hot" button, which would "tag" the image
as a possible selection - but I don't want to move it at that point. Then
when I've gone through all the pictures the selected ones would be
highlighted, or have a check mark by them, or be grayed out, or whatever.
Then I could look at just those in succession as a group. Right now I'm
writing down the image number, then going back and looking at them one at a
time, which is inefficient and breaks up the continuity and comparisons.
Another way is move the images into another folder as I go, but this is also
awkward and time consuming.



I find this very hard to explain. If anyone can help at this point it would
be greatly appreciated.

Google introduced a new version of Picasa today, with added features. It may do what you want, and it is free.

Better yet, get PhotoShop Elements 3.0 which includes the Album
functions, and very complete editing facilities as well.
