On importing in LR, I usually rename files, and used to be able to specify the Start Number. I recently signed on to CC and when I import photos, the Shoot Name and Start Number options are grayed out in the File Renaming Panel. The photos are continually being assigned incremental numbers.
How do I get the option for the Start Number back?
I have a CC Photography acct, using iMac.
Found my answer:
The Start Number only becomes available when file naming has "-Sequence" specified - either in the predetermined formats, or when creating a custom template.
I guess that makes sense, but not immediately obvious (at least not to me) ; I would have liked the option to always be available. For instance, in my original template, I chose "Image #" instead of "Sequence #" and this grayed out the Start Number option.
This also applies when using the Library > Rename Photos...
Hope this helps.
