Chapter 23: File Naming and Organizing

When naming files it is important to keep organized. Organized enough for even a stranger to have a general idea of what the file is before opening it. It is key to name all files using the same format. If you keep the same naming format, then it will be easier to find files in the future.

I name my files by putting the date first, followed by a phrase about the subject. For example; 20180304_redding_shasta. I use the year first because then the files are in chronological order. If the month is put first, then after a year of files, things will be jumbled up. February photos from three different years will all be lumped together by month instead of by the year.
