Quote from: Richard on January 22, 2014, 07:10:06 PMAs for including names of persons in a file name, it would be too complex for a group photo with 18 persons even when I know all the names. Instead I rely on Categories. Each family member has their own category. The labels for those categories begin with a complex number which causes the categories to sort into a family tree order. Thus when I select a thumbnail I can see which lineage categories the file has been assigned to and that gives me names as well as lineage information.

Quote from: dcb on February 05, 2014, 09:35:28 AMI just go a straight 6 digits i.e., ######.ext and for versions ######-##.ext. That gives me a million files with a hundred versions of each. All the other information such as dates is in the metadata. I have too many files with unknown dates that break under a date based filing system.
