I've been using "feh" daily and I just love it. It's not user friendly without the nautilus terminal, but, with nautilus terminal, there's no problem opening up a terminal window in the directory of the photos.

When I see a great picture, I simply hit the "enter" key, which then executes the action (A) which, in this case, is to run the command "mv %f ./%n".
1st, navigate to the photo folder in the Gnome GUI
2nd, I create a sub-folder, e.g., "bestpics"
3rd, I navigate to that bestpics folder & right click to "Open in terminal"
4th, at the prompt, I type: $ feh -F -A "mv %f ./%n" ..
That moves the selected file (%f) to the current directory (./) and keeps the same file name "%f" as it was prior.
I just love simple solutions to common problems!
