Make TAGS editable or deletable from master list, please

Make TAGS editable or deletable from master list, please

Through weeks of tagging thousands of my portrait photos, I've changed my tags to better flow and group by category, but the old tag names are still popping up as options. I would like those gone as options. It would be great to see a master list of tags, and from there be able to manage (edit, delete) tags from a master list, not just from individual files. Thanks for considering!

Totally needed feature.
A tagging system that lacks management is not really useful.


Managing tags is the second thing I tried to do after Adding tags to some test files. Projects never stay the same, people change their minds, assigned tags need to be renamed, obsolete tags need to be removed.
I assume the main reason this idea is not actively promoted is that people do not use tags in first place 🤷‍:male_sign:. I get that you probably released a MVP for the tagging feature, and tags management is hopefully coming, but that is the issue with MVPs: it is really hard to define what is "minimum viable", if wrong they tend to deliver wrong feedback. 
Thank you for listening, bye

There should be an option to remove tag(s) from multiple images 

 

If I`ve added to 100 photos a new tag the only way to remove it from all photos - go thought each photo and remove it manually !

 

*Also would be nice to have an option to remove tags after adding to some folder 

 

Thank you ❤️

An example: My organization tags staff in photos so that we can readily pull great images of specific people to use in relevant media. Sometimes people's names change! Would be a huge time saver to be able to visit a "manage tags" page and simply change "Jane Doe" to "Jane Roe" and keep it moving.

 

Another: Maybe we use "headshot" as a tag often but accidentally entered "headshots" a couple dozen times. Rather than edit the tags on each image, it'd be ideal to simply go in and change "headshots" to "headshot" and call it a day!
