Specifying delivered files' names

You can change the name of files when they are delivered, for example based on their delivery format, using the following variables (with the {{ and }} braces) :

{{basename}}The original filename, without its file format extension (1)
{{seq}}The file's sequence number within the delivery
{{width}}The width of the delivered file
{{height}}The height of the delivered file
{{created.year}}The year in the file's shooting date (2)
{{created.month}}The month in the file's shooting date (2)
{{created.day}}The day in the file's shooting date (2)
{{created.hour}}The hour in the file's shooting time (2)
{{created.min}}The minutes in the file's shooting time (2)
{{created.sec}}The seconds in the file's shooting time (2)
{{updated.year}}The year in the file's last update date (3)
{{updated.month}}The month in the file's last update date (3)
{{updated.day}}The day in the file's last update date (3)
{{updated.hour}}The hour in the file's last update time.
{{updated.min}}The minutes in the file's last update time (3)
{{updated.sec}}The seconds in the file's last update time (3)

(1) Special characters are replaced by an underscore.

(2) If the shooting date/time is unknown, the upload date/time is used.

(3) The last update date/time changes for example every time the file's metadata is changed in your admin space, or when it is replaced.

Examples

The variables can be mixed as you wish. Here are a few simple examples:

  • To denote that a file is low-res: {{basename}}-lowres
  • To add the delivered size to filenames: {{basename}}-{{width}}x{{height}}
  • To replace the original filename by a client or project's name with a sequence number: PROJECT_X-{{seq}}. We don't recommend you remove the basename if there is a chance the client might ask for a different edit or format, as it will make it much more difficult for you to identify the file on your end, especially if you don't include the shooting date/time.

Do not include a file extension (.jpg, .tif, .mp4, etc…), it is automatically added based on the format delivered.
