Whether it's forgetting to update the name for the next sample, using an incorrect name format, or just inputting a simple typo, the causes for misnamed images seem minor but can kill momentum in a high-volume setting, leading to confusion and even unnecessary reshoots.

Avoid Simple Mistakes That Lead To Reshoots

The photographer in an E-commerce studio has two jobs: make great images, and deliver them on time and with accurate names. But even top performers in a studio make basic mistakes once in a while. In a high-volume setting, these simple mistakes cause major confusion or disruption downstream, resulting in unnecessary and costly reshoots.

The people behind Creative Force understood these issues and made their platform with the belief that if something can be done automatically, it should be-removing the opportunity for human error.

Choose The Naming Convention That Works For You

So when you're setting up your studio in Creative Force, one of the things you will designate in the Style Guide is the number of images required and how they should be named. The naming convention is totally customizable, and you can use any characteristic about the product, the client, or process that exists in the platform.

When your teams are working in Creative Force, they are working with a virtual record of the product itself in the system, so there is no need to be concerned with specific image names during production. When images are created, they are tied to the product record. Once selects are made, retouching is completed, and final assets are generated, your determined naming conventions set in, automatically naming images as they're sent along.
