A LPT I read on Reddit which I really found effective, sharing with the community here:

Using following naming convention really helps to keep file system sorted

YYYY - MM - DD - Name

Your folders, will always be sorted in order making it easier for you to locate them.

    That's why you use the ISO date format, because even stupid string sorting works on that.

    umm... obviously.
    i mean yeah, good tip, but i would think/hope that it's pretty obvious to people here which date(time) format is the best (this one) and why (because of this), and that it's nice to use it like this ;)

    You can also just name your file "kljsdflkjsdflkjsd.jpg", and then use metadata for sorting & searching.

    Most native file browsers allow you to edit EXIF fields -- And there are tons of great photo library managers which make the job even easier.

    In Windows explorer you can search by EXIF tags for example using "tag: penis width: >2000" in the search field, and on Linux command line you can grep using exiftool.
