File names exceeding 30 characters limit

Just starting out as an Adobe Stock contributor, learning as fast as I can.

After completing my first batch of submissions I've decided to start keeping a CSV file to make uploading file information and keywords more efficient.

However, upon reading Adobe's instructions for the CSV file, I find file names should not exceed 30 characters. The files I already uploaded, including those that have been approved so far, have  names that exceed the 30 character allowance. Should I keep those names in my CSV file and generate shorter names for new files in the future? Or should I fix this for the files already uploaded and approved? How?

Thanks in advance!

Hi IvanMy experience uploading is, the uploader makes certain preliminary checks and provide warnings that you can see and make adjustments before tagging. I would want to believe length of file name would be one of those checks the uploader would make. So I would say leave the approved ones as is, but just to make sure, try to stay within the limits for future uploads.RegardsJG

Reuploading approved pictures is not always free of risk. A different moderator may reject the picture for a currently unknown reason.
