Thanks. Do you have any system for the description.

Also, remember that for the date to properly cause the files to be listed in chronological order, you have to use an initial 0 for all the single-digit months and days.

I do a LOT of this (last year I took nearly 11K photos...)

I follow this format:

date_brief-description_version.###

For example:

10109_woman-on-nye_1b.jpg

I try to keep it all in lower case and simple enough to know exactly what it is by looking at it. I use the date first in order to (hopefully) effect the order in which they're listed on my hard drive.

Hope this helps!

I was wondering what kind of system - if any - you all use for naming
your graphics files that you insert into or link to your documents. I
try to give them names that are as descriptive as possible, but we have
no established order for naming them, and I was loosely considering
suggesting that we establish some kind of order.
