If you are a publicist or producer and your unit photographer has sent you images that don’t follow our recommended naming guidelines, you can quickly and easily do this for yourself in the following way.
BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT ALL RAW/HIGH RES IMAGES HAVE THE EXACT SAME FILENAME AS THEIR LOW RES JPG COUNTERPARTS. IF THEY DO NOT, IT WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE TIME CONSUMING FOR YOU TO IDENTIFY APPROVED IMAGES ONCE TALENT HAVE COMPLETED THEIR KILLS.
Step 1 – Download Adobe Bridge
Adobe Bridge is a FREE photo management software tool and if you ever need to work with images, we cannot emphasise enough how brilliant this is to have in your arsenal.
Step 2 – Batch Rename
Open Adobe Bridge and navigate to the folder of images you wish to rename. Select all of the images then do the following:
Right click > Batch Rename
A modal will appear and you enable you to customise your filenames.
We recommend these naming guidelines.
