Photo file names in Elements 10

Jul 20, 2012 12:52 PM

I recently upgraded from elements 9 to elements 10. When importing photods from various digital cameras in Elements 9, each imported photo had a file name, e.g. IMG_0556. When importing photos using Elements 10, the imported photo does not get a file name. It only comes with the date and time.  Is there something I need to do to get Elements 10 to automatically assign a file name to each imported photo?

    By default, the photodownloader creates a folder structure named by dates. You can change that behaviour in the Organizer preferences (camera or card reader).

    Chances are that what you are seeing is not the files names, but the names of the sub-folders including your files with their original names ?

    If file names are missing from the thumbnail view, go to the View menu and ensure that Show File Names is checked.
