  • File naming upon downloading will be:
  • Category + last name + first name + student ID number
  • It is recommended that you plug in your camera’s memory card and review your images in Bridge. Once you’ve selected your entry image(s), following the naming instructions of that file(s). This can be done right in Bridge. Once the file is properly named, drag it to the entry folder on the computer desktop.
  • Please see lab techs if you have any problems or questions.
