Renaming Files

Mylio allows you to rename a single image or a set of images to better understand what the photo is. When first importing, all file names will remain the same as they are on your camera or import device unless otherwise specified. However, you can adjust this at any time and create your own renaming workflow.

To view your current filename, select the image and locate the File Name in the Info section of the Details panel.
