Is there any way to find the original file name of a picture after it has been approved?

I upload my files with the original file name into Adobe. If the picture is rejected, the website shows the original file name and I can easily find the file on my computer and work on fixing it. However, there are times that I need to know the original file name of my picture after it has been approved on Adobe. I could not find any way to find the original file name. If this option is not available what strategy do you use to find your approved pictures after a few years on your computer? 

Any feedback is appreciated

Thank you

I don't think so, which is why I always paste the original file name in as my last keyword. I use the Lightroom Classic built-in Publish Service to upload all my images to Adobe Stock. I attached keyword "Adobe Stock" to every image in that collection and I set the Color Label to Green to each of those images. In that manner, when I'm browing through folders of images in LRC I can easily spot those that have already been submitted to Adobe Stock. Similarly, I add a keyword "ASR" for Adobe Stock

This is brilliant. I didn't know we can embed file names in the keywords. 

Thank you.

I use a similar method @Jill_C!  I use a keyword that filters images into a smart collection.  I have 30 or so keywords that filter into various smart collections to keep track of where I post photos on the web.

We can't see the file names after content is accepted.

I keep my stock images in a stock folder and I am organizing them by subject matter. That makes it easy to track down the photos that I need to find later on.

Do you use Adobe Bridge to manage your files?  It's a very useful tool.

  • Organize your assets with labels, ratings, metadata, and keywords.
  • Use advanced filters, collections, and search to find the assets you’re looking for
