I started using LR with version 2.. My import workflow has been the same untill 6.1 and all my files are organised in the same way since more than 10 years.
I passed on LR6.2 given the changes made in the import dialogue. But upgraded to LR6.3 thinking that the problem was solved.
But now I notice that all my pictures are renamed and placed in folders corresponding to the import date instead of the shooting date.. I have a customized way of renaming my files and went into that dialogue, but didn't fiind how to revert to LR importing my pictures using the shooting date. This is creating havoc both on my hard drives and in LR. I use the shooting date a lot to find my pictures, since I often neglect to add keywords.
I really need to be able to get the shooting date in the name of my pictures and to have them copied to the correct date folder.
Thanks in advance for your help.
BTW : something has changed in the way the forum appears. Search isn't very powerful... it didn't bring anything, yet I know the import dialogue was discussed at length when 6.2 was introduced. Plus I can't see any way to browser past the few more recent messages. I don't like the new interface.
What are the settings in the destination panel of the import window ?
Well, I answered my own question. Yes, I was looking at the settings in the destination panel... there is a line showing how your renaming would look.. and it showed the import date as the new name.. but in fact.. that was only to show you how the renaming would look. Since I had a picture selected I thought it would show the renaming for that picture. But it isn't related to the picture.. The import worked as intended.. Apologies for the disturb. .
