like most of us at some point in the past :-).

The digikam albums are simply operating system folders, so it's best to 
first collect all your photos and store then under the same tree.

The only sorting system that give always a good result is chronological 
one I always store my photos by date. Picture date if available, else 
sorting date

after a starting sort by hand, digikam can be set to analyze the images 
and do more complex sorting, the first being tagging images (long work, 
have to be done manually)
