Looking back to an email I sent from Digikam in September 2007 it was similar 
to this:

I was sending pictures from an album with the name "070922_nature". The 
captions was (say) "Two participants at the old bridge". The pictures 
downsized and emaild by D were renamed to 
"070922_nature-Two participants at the old bridge.JPG

In addition I could also chose to attach a file comments.txt but the names of 
the pictures was really handy and made good use of the comments I had entered. 
I'm still having this as a rule of thumb for how to write my picture comments: 
It should make sense when presented like this being not too long.
