Personally, I use exiftool to import my NEF pictures from memorycard. It
uses only one command line to do this and it organize my NEF files like
NefFolder/Year/month/>my pictures renamed like :
nb-photos-year-month-day_hours-minutes-seconds(+ an eventual number to
differentiate photos taken the same second).
As I shoot the most of the time landscape and "non-events" pictures, the
family, birthday, etc, are outside of this folder, and not very much
organized. For the main part of the photos, in the ideal scheme, I use
firstly digikam to view all my pictures, at this time I delete the worse,
and eventually, give some star to the best ones.
If the pictures are linked to a particular place, I geotag their (all
photos, not only these with star) with digikam, and add a tag of this kind
I don't use all steps each time (especially, region and department are
only used for location in France, Town is use only when I'm in one...
And after, I use some tag for particular kind of picture like... Insects,
Trees, Lanscape, Flower, etc...
