I have seen various programs/scripts that deal with duplicates. fdupes
comes to mind, and fslint. Use with care, especially if using
automatic delete!

There are also command line tools to read the photo's internal
details, which are usually in exif format. It would be moderately
trivial to write a program/script that reads the exif date and puts
the photo in a folder YYYY/MM/DD, or such other arrangement of folders
as you desire.
