I am attempting to migrate to LR from Picasa. In LR all folders are sorted alphabetically. But all my photos from my iPhone go into subfolders within a folder named iCloud Photos. I want to modify names to reflect date taken but all the iCloud Photos will stay in subfolder. How can I solve this?
Edit: Do you want to re-name photos or folders?
If you must rename the photos
Select them all in the folder (Ctrl+A), Press F2 (keyboard Function 2), Click the Drop-down menu at the end of the File-Naming box, Select "Edit" from the menu.
This opens the File re-naming template editor where you can construct how the renames will look by inserting data appropriate-
And use "Date" to add to the file name. (the metadata drop-down menus provide many options)
Do a test and practice on one or two files before you rename the whole folder.
