[Digikam-users] Albums: how do you organize them?

I organise by year then by date, with the event or location appended to the folder name. E.g. 2010/2010-04-22XyzBeach.

The year folders means there aren't thousands of folders to scroll through, and the day folders mean I can go straight from my diary to the right folder. I visit the same locations so often that organising by location would mean too many photos in one folder.

Appending the location or event to the folder name is just a convenience, I add a location tag too.

Organising by date also reduces the chance of file name clashes when the cameras run out of numbers and start from 1 again.

I'm just curious how you organize your albums in digikam. My idea is not to 
just use the date -- I can get that automatically -- but to have albums like 
that Party / Peter's Birthday 50th or holidays / 2010 Prague etc.

Maybe there are still better ideas out there.

Anyway, a bit off topic, this is my general workflow with bibble and geotag for 


Comments also appreciated.
