I'm doing a huge overhaul of my photo library right now (going and and getting rid of all the insane duplicates, blurry photos, etc.), and also somewhat merging 2 libraries, and I'm wondering what file structure/naming convention people use for their photo libraries?
Right now my folder structure is:
Photos Folder > Year > Month > File name
My file naming convention is YYYY_MM_Sequence# (Hopefully this screenshot works!)

Since I auto import into Lightroom, and have the naming convention setup there, the sequence number obviously goes in order (0001, 0002, 0003, and on and on), but then as I go through and delete out duplicates,etc. you can see it kind of gets out of whack.
I hope that all makes sense....??
Just wondering how others handle importing/naming, photos, and what your photo file structure looks like.
ETA: Also just realized for some reason I have an 02_January folder??? Haha. Just another example of some of the randomness that I'm trying to clean up!
