Integrate the date in picture file names Do so respecting DCF and not like Android. Olympus does that where their format is Pmddnnnn, where m is the month (hex digit), dd is the day of the month and nnnn is the 4 digit sequence as per the standard. This should alleviate most of the concerns.
Just to give an example: P8070001.jpg would be today. P8080002.jpg would be tomorrow P8080003.jpg P8080004.jpg PC240010.jpg would be on Christmas eve P1010012.jpg would be on new Years.
A better suggestion for us: PYYMnnnn.jpg: where YY is the year in decimal and M the month in hex. With the consecutive numbering with have over a century worth of unique names unless you take more than 1000 pictures a month. We could also do YYMxnnnn.jpg with x being incremented as we cycle through nnnn.
Of course as we cycle through nnnn we also create new directories as per the DCF standard.
Summary: Integrate the date in picture file names → Ensure the names are unique across picture folders in DCF
The goal is to deal with the use case of "I copy all the pictures into on directory". The proposed scheme is reasonably bullet proof.
