    DOUBLE BARREL SURNAMES MUST BE CONNECTED WITH A HYPHEN like “Bloggs-Smith
  • Then add an Underscore and the Title of your image followed by another Underscore. If you do not wish to have a title then just use a blank.  i.e. _ _ as above.
  • The last part of the image name is a full stop followed by theh file typee, i.e. jpg or .jpeg  The file type is normally enterd by your computer and should not be entered twice.
  • e.g.  the filename "Joe Bloggs-Smith_my first image title_1.jpg.jpg " is NOT CORRECT

    Joe Bloggs-Smith_my first image title_1
