I usually run a Gnome-based distribution which included Shotwell as the default digital camera importer and manager but am running KDE (4.7 in openSUSE 12.1) and am not highly familiar with KDE offerings.

I am trying to get familiar with Gwenview and Digikam and find that I do like how Shotwell defaults to placing images in a directory tree based on the date taken (e.g. yyyy/mm/dd) so when importing from multiple days they all go into their respective directory without me having to do anything.

Actually, it doesn't have to be broken out that way, if it were one folder, say like .../2012-02-20/... then that would be fine.

I see the Gwenview importer allows me ot change the name of the picture, but the directory is manual. Digikam requires placing images in Albums using names.

Most of my pictures are basically random shots of things going on with the family and don't really fit into any one particular "album".

Is there a different setting I am not finding, or a different program that will make it easy to import pictures this way?
