Photo & Video file names from iPhone Uploads

FXV New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi, 

I'm new to the community so please bear with me. I have been uploading my photos and videos from my iPhone using "Camera Uploads" because the file names are perfect for my use, namely it shows the date in reverse and the time. e.g. 2020-04-01 10.23.06.mov

However, when I select videos or photos to upload i.e. manually the naming regime changes to "Photo 12-12-14, 8 12 00 pm.jpg" which is not what I want!

Is there any way I can control the naming regime?

I hope I have explained my issue sufficiently.

Cheers,

FX

There are no settings that control the file name formats, but you can manually rename files as you're uploading them. There's an option to do so after you select the photo or video that you wish to upload.

Thanks Rich,

I was hoping for something that will prevent me from doing it manually; however, your advice is far better than what I was doing!

Thanks again.
