Photo File Naming
Feb 6, 2014

When you import your photos to your workflow software, how do you name the file? It's simple to just keep the camera give name "IMG_1234", however I want a unique serial name for each file and I know I will shoot more than 9999 photos in the life of the camera.

I'm thinking of using the naming convention IMG_1234_A, where A goes from A to Z so every time the counter reaches 9999, the letter dials up one. This will give at least 9999 x 26 combinations.
