Don't Rename Photos

Digital photos (jpg) and videos (e.g. mp4) should be loaded "as is" and should not be renamed (they can be listed in chronological order, regardless of filename, using the embedded EXIF date-taken data). 

If you would like to provide a note about a particular photograph or video - for example a note pointing to some feature in the photo or video the significance of which may not be immediately obvious - don't add that note to the file name of the jpg or mp4: leave the file name as it is. Instead create a Word document with a line for each photo or video you wish to comment on, giving the the date and time the photo was taken followed by your comment. In the case of a video state how many minutes and seconds into the video the feature you are commenting on appears. 


   
When complete, email the Word document to me.
