Make your image files easier to find by giving them names.
For instance, rather than “Image403.jpg” assign a name like “041225-too_much_eggnog.jpg”. Notice the 04 is the year, 12 is month, and 25 is day. By putting the year first it will sort pictures according to year—if you did it month first then all the 12′s for 04, 05, etc. would be lumped together.
It’s best to assign names when the pics are fresh out of your camera.
