Paul Cramp   Richard, It depends on what the images are actually of.
We have over 18,000 images of tooling stored in library. Each product has to have a unique code for ordering, so each image is identified and filed using this code.
Distributors of stock photography Split their images into sections according to the image type. For example; Nature, Landscapes, Weather etc. Each image is named to remind you what is on the image so that you do not have to open the file. Example: Lion in trees, tornado, etc.
For further ideas refer to the following web sites:

Hope this helps.
