A late addition (I get the digest, and just got back from a road

Don't forget the use of sub-directories in organizing. If you use
a sub-directory for UI functions, then naming individual graphics
becomes easier. I've used this method on a project with over 600
graphics, and it works well.

However, for some reason, may Windows and Mac users rarely think
of deepening the directory structure. Maybe deep directories are
more likely to be considered when you're on a UNIX or Linux
machine, and your files are stored in something like
"/home/bbyfield/bigcompany's_project" to start with.
