Quick Tip: Rename in Lightroom

Here is a quick tip which is always worth bearing in mind when you are on a trip, or returning from a trip and thinking about merging catalogs or just generally tidying up; always rename files and folders in the Lightroom interface.

This prevents a lot of heartache if you’re tempted to rename files/folders in the Finder/Explorer. Rename in the filesystem and Lightroom will lose the connection to your images. You might then move on to do something else and then wonder what has gone wrong!
