Any advice on the best way of organising images and graphs for a PhD student?

I'm interested to learn what strategies people use for organizing images, graphs and diagrams over the course of a long research project. I find that I spend a fair amount of time reformatting images for various purposes, such as documents, presentations and posters.
At the moment I am writing a paper using Latex, so I want all my graphs to be .eps and a certain size. But I can't figure out what the best font/image size to use is, or line-weight. Do people use a personal 'style guide' for each case? Are there any standards out there?
I am creating my images from Matlab, R, ArcGIS and Excel.
I'd like to develop a good strategy now so that I can use the diagrams and graphs I have now in a few years time.
