Brand Toolbox can automatically and sequentially number images, so there is no need to individually and manually name the files.
Having the system automatically generate image numbers prevents duplicate image filenames from entering the system. It also keeps a consistent naming convention that suits your individual filenaming taxonomies.
Note that the feature can be turned off, and uploading images will retain the existing uploaded filenames instead.
Please note the following settings regarding automatic image numbering:
Should images be renamed per convention below?
If untoggled (off), original uploaded filenames will be kept.
If toggled (on), images will be numbered per the additional settings below. Note that the original uploaded filename is recorded by the solution and searchable.
Note to BT Developer Team: These override settings configured in the ‘PhotoLibrary.config’.
Photo ID Prefix
Choose a prefix for your images. For example, enter ‘IM’ if you would like your images to be numbered:
Note that if the field is left blank, ‘BT’ will be added automatically.
Last Used Photo ID
This ID number is automatically updated as each new image is uploaded. It should not be altered.
If uploading your image library for the first time, the number can be reset to ‘0’ to restart numbering at ‘1’.
Photo ID Length
If automated numbering is turned on, you can choose how many digits are included in the image number.
Note that the overal ‘Photo ID Length’ includes the ‘Photo ID Prefix’ length.
By default, images that don’t have keywords matching any other categories or that aren’t manually re-assigned to other categories, on upload, will be assigned to the ‘Miscellaneous’ category during the upload process.
If you would like ‘stray’ images to be assigned to a different category, simply select another category as the Default Category (follow the instructions below to reassign).
To remove Miscellaneous as the Default Category, and assign a new default:
