When I import images to Classic from my DSLR to Lightroom I have a custom file name preset to name the image something like YYY-MM-DD - sequence#. The photos I take on my iPhone auto-sync with Lr Classic and create a file name like IMG_091.jpg
Is there a way to include a naming convention like the one I've created for DSLR imports?
The Lightroom sync options don’t seem to provide a way to do that automatically. I use a semi-automatic workaround.
The raw photos I shoot with the Lightroom mobile camera always start with APC_ and that doesn’t match my naming convention. I created a Smart Collection that lists all photos in the catalog that start with APC_ so that I can select them all, press F2 (the shortcut for Library > Rename Photo), and then apply the same rename preset that I use for camera card imports. The remaining problem with this workaround is that I have to remember to do it once in a while.
You might set up a similar Smart Collection that lists all images starting with IMG_ . The only reason that isn’t part of my Smart Collection criteria is that I use the phone’s built-in camera for JPG images that I don’t usually need to sync with my Lightroom Classic catalog, because I prefer the raw images from the Lightroom camera. But for the few phone JPG images that I do catalog, I should probably add a line for IMG_ and change the Match line to “any”.
