I want the ability to rename my photos once they've been uploaded to dropbox and then download those renamed photos to my computer. Being able to rename the photos on dropbox isn't hard, but I'm noticing two issues occur when I try to download and open these renamed pictures:
They do not show as the renamed file name, they still have the default time stamp as the file name
They do not open at all on my computer. I get the message "It looks like we don't support this file format", even though it is saving as a .jpg.
Interestingly, if I don't rename the picture or return the file name to the original default name, I can download and open just fine, but once I rename the picture I get the above two issues. For context I want to take pictures of inventory items and then rename the files to the stock numbers so they are more easily identifiable.
Would appreciate any advice as I believe this functionality should be working!
I'm downloading the file from the web browser to my computer. I just tagged mobile because the picture is originally coming from my phone, but I'm accessing it from my computer. Here's an example of the error message I get when I try to download the renamed picture:
Yes, I'm able to view the renamed picture on the dropbox website. However it seems to automatically rename that photo back to the default name once I try downloading it. As for its original name, I'm not sure if dropbox renames pictures when they're first uploaded but I imagined it would be the time stamp that you see in my last response without the (1) suffix.
The downloaded renamed picture doesn't open on Paint, Paint3D, or through Adobe Acrobat DC. You can see in the below screenshot, though, that it looks like it's not even downloading anything once it's renamed since the file size is 0KB. The file on the bottom is the original photo not renamed, and the top one is the "renamed" photo without the changed name:
I'm trying to rename these photos to ID numbers so in dropbox for example I renamed the test photo to 15-2021-03-03 09.06.47. In other words I just added the prefix of 15-[original time stamp name].
