File Names

When I submit/upload images for review, I use file names that are assigned by the device that has taken the photograph inorder to organize my data.  For example, IMG_8973.jpg

 

I understand that giving an image a relevant title with supporting keywords is important, to help users find content and obtain good search engine results.  Is it also important to give a file a name that reflects the files content?

No, the filename is important for your orientation, but Adobe replaces the filenames with their asset ID and an Adobe prefix.

Though Adobe stores the file name, it's not really of use. You can see it on the lower right side of the screen when you're adding keywords. I copy it into the last keyword field on my submissions in case I ever need to search my portfolio for a specific asset.

Thank you for the tip!  Promptly, gave it a try with one of my asset IDs.

Embarrassingly, while I recently realized that each approved asset has a unique File ID attached to it and that I should be cataloging these IDs, the thought that they could be used as a search tool never came to mind.
