Name digital picture files for easy retrieval

This is just one good way to label digital picture files, as practiced by professional photographer, Michael Greco.

Notice, I’m just suggesting it as one good idea – the video clip itself is titled “The World’s Best File Naming System” – and this raised the heckles of commenters on the comments section.  Some were in haste to point out that they felt their system of file-naming was best.

Every one will find their own storage and naming system which comes most easily to their own way of thinking – but if you haven’t yet firmly established a naming practice – well, this idea may be a useful way to begin.
