Since I have a large number of old photos and slides that I have scanned to 
create a long family history I can't use the date of the photo automatically. 
They are all registered as the date scanned and changing dates on over 7,000 
photos is not on my agenda right now and in many cases the year is close as I 
can get. I use a structure that has a folder for each year and then sub-folders 
for major events such as Christmas, Birthdays, and Vacations.
