Usually I organize my photos in a directory by year and at least one
other category (lets say 2010/Frankfurt). Additionally I use some
folders for special events like vacation, marriages, birthdays.
Parallel to the folders I tag all my photos with three major groups:
with various subtags. Every now and then I reorganize my tags. To find
some vacation photos I usually use the folder view. To search for
persons I mostly use the tag view. I currently use a mix of folder and
tags to find my photos.
Since this year I use the renaming feature of digikam during import
but I don't use the filename for searching.
I don't like the year/month/day aproach for storing my photos.
Sometimes I have to use other programs than digikam and I don't
remeber very well what I have done on 2009-08-14. And with the
timeline feature I can access the photos at a specific date much
