I know I'm not doing something right but I cannot figure out what it is. I rename the photos when they are downloaded; however, when the photos are transferred to Photoshop Elm. for further processing (after Lightroom adjustments) the name changes. Currently the name changes to a date. I'm fairly certain I have some option not set correctly but I don't know what/where it is. Help, this is driving me nuts.
Lightroom does not change the original file, and it will not let your external editor change it either.
Go to the / Menu / edit / preferences / external editing
and see what your "naming template" is set to (bottom of the dialog).
