In the file naming section of Publishing/Export dialog box where you can create naming templates, I'd like to have a way to include "orientation" in the generated file name. This would be one of L for Landscape, P for Portrait, or S for Square.

Here's the use case, I use variants of the "Hard Drive" export and publish service's to populate and maintain folders on my cell phone and tablet as well as other places. Many of these devices and places organize photos by file name. It's really annoying to keep rotating the phone or tablet every time the next photo is the other way around - Especially when showing my photos to others. I'd like to have all the landscape (horozonatl) ones grouped together followed by all the portrait (vertical) ones then the square ones so I only have to rotate my device between groups. If I could pre-pend an L, P or S to the front of the file name upon export my problem will be solved.

Thanks -- Dan
