All my current cameras are digital; and that in itself helps them to be organized. When I take a disc to load unto my computer, I put it under "camera, to be organized." When time allows (now or later), I go through and sort all the pictures into folders according to event, person, etc.
This is what I did for my older photos. Over a long period of time, I took pages out of my albums and scanned them into the computer. Dd not remove your photos from albums, as this might destroy and/or scar your photos. Then again, when time allowed, I went through this folder and since each page has multiple pictures, I used a cut and paste program available with the photo program already in my computer, and put them once again in the correct folders. As I "clean up" these sources, I erased the original file in my computer (since now everything would be duplicated!).
It does not happen overnight; these processes took some time, but each time I dedicated some time to work on them, I was filled with my memories and found the time to pass quickly and enjoyably. Also good is that when I got done with, for instance: Alex (my son), I burned a disc and sent it to him. Now he and his wife have copies of all his baby pictures and more as he grew up. A nice way to pass along your family history.
I hope this helps, just take it easy and don't rush.
