lightroom 2 – tip #2

I’ll be staying with the import dialog for these next few tips.  A very important option during this stage is file naming.  You can edit the way files are named by choosing Edit from the Template drop down menu.  What appears is shown above.  I chose YYMMDD-Custom Text-00X as my naming convention.  I then saved it with the name “my naming convention.”  Choose something that works for you.  I highly recommend you use custom text somewhere in your file naming.  If you end up with multiple image files in the same folder, you will be glad that a short description of the image will be part of the filename.

    She is too young to be a cougar. You should brush up on your bro code.
