If I right-click on a photo in New Lightroom CC, I can choose to copy it. However, the copy gets the same name as the original. How do I change the file name?

Thanks, Jim

You can't rename photos in LRCC.

I'll stop trying then!

I have discovered a work-around though. If you right-click and Save Original, you can then rename the saved file using the usual operating system methods and then import the renamed file into Lightroom CC. It's a bit long winded, but it works.

I'm one step nearer to moving back to Lightroom Classic...

Yes, but doesn't that just add more images to your library? Do you really want "duplicate" images?

So stupid... Why on earth remove features that are so commonly used? Following in Apple's footsteps it seems.

Back to the old version of Lightroom, where I get more than two export settings. Sorry... I mean 'Save to' settings.

You can't - Adobe wants you to buy and thus pay for both versions - LightroomCC and Classic  - there are no intentions to change this. It is an intentional setup as confirmed by their helpdesk
