When tagging pictures with keywords, I find it very often useful to be able to include in a selection pictures that contain a certain keyword BUT also to exclude pictures that do NOT contain this keyword.

Let's assume you have just taken 200 family pictures. You have tagged a few with the keyword 'Beach'. Now you want to check whether you have missed pictures that still should be tagged with the keyword 'Beach'. In these cases, it would be great to just omit or exclude all pictures that already contain the keyword 'Beach' and to simply check the remaining pictures to see whether you have missed one or not.

I could imagine some sort of red/green traffic light behind each keyword in the filter
function. You could simply click the red or green radio button to include / exclude each keyword.
