Export file naming

Recommended Posts

Suggestion for default file naming for improved workflow:
- for focus merge, panorama, HDR stacking etc.  use the filename of the first image of the sequence and append an appropriate sub-string.  E.g.  <1st-file-name>_fmerge<.jpg>,  <1st-file-name>_stitch<.jpg>, etc

- when exporting an edited image, set the default filename to e.g.  <org-file-name>_af<.jpg>.  If the filename already ends with '_af' append  '1' and increment on each subsequent export for that same image. This saves the time of having to search through the list of images for the first file in the sequence.

- after an export, rename document/image to that of the just exported image
(Note: when focus stacking images, the filenames in the 'sources' window have underscore characters removed
