I can't find the start of this thread but "Immediate" generally (but not always)
does something to the file on the line point is.

Shouldn't this item be under "Regexp"?

And this one (and others) under "Operate"?

The other items under "Operate" are bound to upper case letters.

How about (I = image):

tumme-tag-remove       C-t r  ->   I r
tumme-tag-files        C-t t  ->   I t
tumme-display-thumbs   C-t d  ->   I d

Assuming tumme-tag-remove deletes tags, tumme-tag-delete sounds better.

tumme-tag-files works on just one file. It might be clearer to call
it tumme-tag-add (and bind it to "I a")
