I'm looking for something that can tag images, and then display any combination of tags (preferably even having the option to subtract certain tags) in a randomized slideshow.

Example: Say I have 20 pictures, 10 of them are of dogs (5 golden retrievers and 5 huskies) and 10 are of cats (5 are house cats and 5 are lions). I can appropriately tag them "dog," "lion," etc. And then view something like "dogs + house cats", or "dogs - not puppies" in a slideshow that is randomized.

Things I've tried in the past just haven't worked too well. Using Windows Explorer, since there isn't a way to tag pngs, it devolved into making many different folders turning an original count of 2000 pictures into 5000 (and it's still imperfect), and using bulk rename utility to randomize the orders. Then trying Google Photos, its facial recognition tagging is nice (I especially liked the dedicated people tab, which wouldn't be necessary, but it would be nice), if you could actually tag faces where it doesn't see any, which you can't, and there's no random slideshow feature that includes all selected pictures.
