How to organise photos

HEWCanon | Software Techniques | Published Jan 7, 2013

First thing after taking photos and importing them to a PC is to organise them in a way that allows finding them in the future

I use Lightroom to organise my photos (always shoot in RAW).

I have set LR to re-name files to yyyymmdd_filename and import to a folder named yyyymmdd into a folder named yyyy . So all photos are renamed to date shot, imported into a folder of the day and inside a folder of the year.
