Re: PHOTO:photo file names

I like Neil's approach. It allows each individual to store any "keeper" 
photos in a way that suits them rather than imposing a renaming scheme 
on all posters that doesn't work for everyone. I personally have a 
Margie folder for all her lovely photographs cause I am too lazy to add 
her name to every single one....
