To do this I would like to have a property called “tag” displayed as a drop-down menu (select box) in the Inspector UI in Neos. The new content element type can be inserted on a page, but there it stops.

Hi Mathias,

I guess you need to write an own ViewHelper which is now taking the tag 
argument and renders all images related to the tag. You need to write 
php I don't think that currently any script is doing the work for you. 
As I haven't done it I can't give you more help, but I would go for the 
ViewHelper solution, I did it with the Galleria extension for TYPO3 the 
same way.
