Photoshop use to use the assigned file photo number when making a website.
At some point that changed and more than once clients have sent me this:
Set 1:
1. 4881979965
2. 9154376663
3. 4724293045
4. 2466774438
5. 7410581922
6. 8625097467
7. 3595956198
8. 7451845590
9. 3568433659
10. 459616415
11. 5251378803

Set 2:

1. 6640528410
2. 6766028058
3. 2079025009
4. 9862703670
5. 3564047989
6. 4425604144
7. 2871670484
8. 9423456802
9. 2032558431
10. 2235243741

Set 3:

Flatwork:

1. 7189686520
2. 0536049689

When the file numbers were a 1224-(sequence number) ie: 1034-34
that would have been job 1034, Image number 34.

The renumbering is maddening for me and clients. I have to go though hundreds of images, visually matching them to examples the client has dragged off the website.

This doesn't happen often. Normally, clients know to write down the image number..but when this DOES happen, I have No kind words for those that changed this feature.

The metadata is also wiped out so I can't even match them by date/time created.
Are you going to fix this? I see it as a serious design flaw..

It would be a HUGE help if you had a plug in that would not only leave numbers in tact but allow clients to rate and color code images similar to what we can do in Bridge. Then they could cull down to just a few and make a more informed edit and easier.
