    Is it possible to name pictures after taking pictures but before saving with Windows Camera ? As I don't know what picture I'm looking for when the file name is; WP_20160729_19_54_31_Raw__highres

    One option is to use the Photo or File/File Explorer app and rename after taking them.

    There is nothing in the Camera app to ask for a name before saving as most people want to snap photos really quickly and that would slow things down.

    It would be a nice option.

    If you have Windows 10, you should be able to install the Feedback Hub app and make the suggestion for it as an option.

    WP - shot with the stock Windows Camera App
    20160729 - date taken is July 29, 2016
    19_54_31 - time taken is 19:54:31 or 7:54 and 31 seconds PM on your system time
    Raw - your phone is capable of capturing DNG
    highres - this is the high resolution copy so your phone is set to capture 2 copies, the oversampled jpg + a high res jpg or dng. I would need to see the file extension to tell which was captured.

    That's how I search in file explorer... By date and time.

    I search the thumbnails in Photos App.

    If I want to see the thumbnails and the file name I plug into USB and navigate in File Explorer on PC.


    Perhaps if you stated a use scenario it might generate more pointed help advice.
