…While it's possible to rename your photographs during the import process, you…can also rename images later in your work flow, if need be.…You may, for example have neglected to…rename your photos during the import process.…Or, you may have deleted some of the images, creating…gaps in the numbering that you'd like to correct by renaming.…Or, you may run into a situation where…the file naming simply doesn't reflect the images themselves.…In this case, for example, I imported two separate…batches of images, but I imported them out of order.…
And so while I renamed the images during import,…the order of that naming doesn't match the capture time.…I'll go ahead and switch to Grid view.…And you can see that we start with image number 16 as our first image.…But then, after a few images, we get to image number one,…even though that's the ninth image in sequence, based on capture time.…And so I would like to rename the images based on the correct capture time.…When you rename photos in Lightroom, the order for…the sequence number will depend upon the current sort order.…
