I had originally lazily and used YYMMDD+filename. Then Y2K came in I was
was forced to rename what seemed like gazillions of photos. Yes, I
thought about using my nifty en masse file renamer program but it turned
out that many of my photos were also name differently (some with space
or dash separation) so, instead of relying on the automated approach and
ending up making more of a mess of it, I decided as my penance for being
inconsistent, I'd do it manually. I was so upset with my past
inconsistency I considered wearing a hair shirt for a month but then
thought better of it.
I preface all my chronological-based (pictures, video, &c) files in
YYYYMMDD+filename format. That way, it's easy to search through a
sorted list :-)
Yeap, I had that pointed out to me previously!!
One day, I'll have to adjust my pictures on a Family Tree website!
Currently, I might have, say, four photo's of a person, sort of baby,
teen, adult, and older type of thing, but the picture title/explanation
is separate to the picture, so you might be looking at the adult picture
but the (single) description is for the baby photo.
Eventually, I want to import each photo into some program, add a
suitable comment (e.g. "Fred Smith, aged 6 years old", or "Joe Blow,
aged 65 years old"), save the revised and renamed photo image then
upload the revised image to the website.
Doing this for 600-odd photo's could take me some time ... even if I
knew which program would handle this on Win7 or Linux OS!!
