I want my photos named for the date and sequence that they were taken. I also don't want to keep all of the photos that I take. My rename & cull process is iterative using the Library module. First I rename all of my photos, then I cull, rename and repeat. Typically, I work in Loupe mode.
The problem is, after these rename operations, some of the thumbnails in the filmstrip are wrong! That is, they reflect different images. This is really bad in my workflow as it can cause me to remove photos that I did not intend to!
Perhaps the problem stems from the fact that, because of the sequenced rename operation, some kept images assume the names (sequence numbers) of some removed images. Regardless, this is certainly a bug. After a rename operation, thumbnails in the filmstrip should properly reflect the images that they are supposed to represent.
Eventually, things get back in sync. Unfortunately, I have no idea what operations it takes to do so. Of course, it should just happen automatically. I have tried Save Metadata and Synchronize Folder operations but they don't always work.
Please help. I am tired of culling good images with the bad.
