Renaming Individual Photos

If you want to rename an individual photo, it’s fairly straightforward. Now, there is a way to instantly rename every photo at once with names that make sense (to you anyway), but that, my friends, is in the next tutorial. For now, here’s how to rename one thumbnail image at a time (this is a great technique to employ if you charge by the hour).

Step One

It’s hard to imagine why someone wouldn’t like such a descriptive file name like “DSC_0029.jpg,” but if you’re one of those people who enjoys names that actually describe what’s in the photos, here’s how it’s done: When you move your cursor over the file name of a thumbnail, you’ll notice that your cursor changes into a text cursor (an “I-beam”), so all you have to do is click that I-beam cursor once on that text and a text entry field appears, highlighting the old name.
