Enhance the file renaming capability

I agree with many others about enhancing the file renaming capability. I currently use LightRoom and it allows me to file my photos with a naming convention that includes the date and time extracted from the XMP metadata. it is as follows:

YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS-JAH.dng

If there are more photos taken within the same second, I have it add another dash after my initials and sequentially number the photos; -1, -2 etc.

I will move from LR cc Classic if you folks could give us this capability. Would like ON1 Raw to batch convert my photos to DNG also, which I currently have LR do, but I understand if you don’t feel you can do that. I can use the Adobe DNG converter. It just adds to my workflow.

You are now rivaling LR and I am about ready to make ON1 Raw my raw processor of choice. I just hope you can see your way to including this renaming enhancement.

    I also use file renaming in Lightroom. My standard preset is the following:
    {date (YYYYMMDD)}{Hour}{Minute}-{Filename number suffix}
    Can’t do without it!

    I like the shoot name technique on export. The name of the file tells me where the related file are located. Adding the shoot name to the start of the original name is perfect.

    I used the date/time thing when I was a wedding photographer and shot with two cameras to avoid having dup filenames. Today, upon import, I put a shoot prefix on my files, followed by the original number of the file. So Grand Canyon pictures that were originally DSC_0001 becomes GrCan_0001. When I do the import into LR, everything is all set up so that I just enter GrCan and it renames everything. Love it!
