Can anyone tell if there is an easier way of naming image files.I have tried numbering ie 1,2, 3 etc but when i reach 10 this appears after 1 and 20 appears after 2.Even if i use words ie pic 1 the numbering is still out of sequence.There must an easy less painful way of doing this.Any suggestions ?
depends on how you want to retrieve them. I file mine under a subject / year sequence system. So for my garden design files, the file is labelled "Garden-2003" for this year, then the images are labelled within the file by month and number - so this month is 02-001, 02-002 etc. I actually use sub-files to locate where the garden is so in my specific case it could be File "Garden-2003", sub-File "Cranborne" then followed by the image sequence number "02-013". It works for me. If I want to sort the images within the sub-files I can then do it by date which is what I want. This maybe something you can use?
