I have recently been post processing my summer photos on Photoshop. some of the images I left in the standard format of L1001375.DNG. Others I identified in a more vernacullar fashion, for instance as uncas owen. the latter images were not recognized by the printer. how do I re-identify these images in their original format so that the printer will recognize them?

To clarify, you have changed the names of the files from "L1001375.DNG" to "uncas owen" and now the printer can't recognize the files? When you say "printer" do you mean a printer connected to your computer? Or are you sending your images to a service provider to print for you?

Jeffery, thanks for responding.  I am transferring via thumb drive the images to a photo developer in the city.   Ian

My guess is your sending raw files instead of exporting developed JPEG or TIFF files.
