Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Renaming images in Bridge, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- Once you have the files transferred to your system,…you're gonna want to do some renaming.…There's a couple of ways of doing this.…Let me show you Adobe Bridge,…and then we'll take a look at Lightroom.…On the Adobe Bridge side, I can simply point it…at a folder of images.…Notice here that I've got an image sequence.…Now, part of the reason that I recommend renaming images…is to avoid problems.…Pay attention to this file name.…GO010007.…Well, if I take a look at the next day of images,…you'll see that it starts to repeat.…
There's 009, and that's definitely a different image…than this 009.…If you don't rename your files,…the GoPro has a tendency to start…to use the same file names.…This is particularly true if the battery gets swapped out,…or the camera goes dead for a while,…or perhaps you're using multiple GoPro cameras.…It's a very good idea to get unique file names.…In Bridge, I recommend you simply…select all the images you want to rename.…Then, choose Tools, Batch Rename.…
You can make presets for this,…and you can decide to either rename them in the same folder,…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
