One of the ways we provide an excellent service to our clients is to label the images for them before we deliver the images. To do this please follow these guidelines:
All images should have the following format: Title_Initials_File Name.jpg
For titles we use the name of the room, for example: Bedroom 1
The following are examples of room names:
- Exterior Front
- Front Yard
- Front Entry
- Living Room
- Family Room
- Master Bedroom
- Master Bathroom
- Master Closet
- Bedroom 2
- Bedroom 3
- Exterior Back
- Back Yard
Please make sure you don't add any additional numbers to each room. No need to label Living Room 1, Living Room 2, etc. It's okay to just label all Living Room images; Living Room. The file name with give it a unique name.
How to Label images in Lightroom
You can give the image a title in the metadata area of Lightroom.
We have found that we like the title to be formatted in capitals. Please just use the name of the room and not the detail.
Export options in Lightroom
In Lightroom we have the ability to create and export preset. To do this, click on export.
Under the File Naming Section you can create a Custom Setting.
Under the Custom Settings you can Edit the settings.
In the edit settings menu. Choose to add the Title to go before the filename. Make sure to insert a _ between the Title and Filename.
Once done, save and now you have a custom setting created for exporting files labeled properly.
