I'd be able to very quickly tag a bunch of photos for later processing.

  • I assigned a keyboard shortcut to "Tags..." from the File menu in Finder. I can hit the shortcut while in Quick View to tag the file quickly. It also works for multi-file tagging, so you can tag multiple files at once. Let me know if this does what you need. I can provide steps on how to achieve this. – Melwan Mar 4 '14 at 18:23

The Tags feature in Finder1 already has a keyboard shortcut which can be activated whilst in Quick Look. Press ⌘⇧T to set a tag on the currently selected file.

To set a custom shortcut…

  1. Open System PreferencesKeyboardShortcutsApp Shortcuts.
  2. Click the + button to add a new shortcut.
  3. Set the Application to Finder.app, and the Menu Title to Tags….
  4. Set your keyboard shortcut and press Add.

1 As this is a feature of Finder, not Quick Look, the modal popup may be behind the Quick Look window.

    That did it, thanks, especially since Quick Look remembers its screen position, so placing it off to the side ensures it doesn't obstruct the tagging window in Finder. – Emerson Farrugia Mar 4 '14 at 19:08
