Camera Images Numbering System



Just got the Z10 and find this is really great.


Using the camera, notice that the images are numbered only


1) IMG-0000001

2) IMG-0000002


Previously using the 9790, the images were numbered for example, IMG-20132003-00001 - where the dates the photos were taken were included.


Any reasons for these? Also can we change these numbering settings?

Is there a reason for this?  Yes.  Do we know that reason and why it was done?  No.


With every new OS, there are always changes; some good; some not so good.  This was one of the changes and we may never have a reason for why it was done.


Can you change the way pics are numbered?  I'm going to venture a guess and say no.  Because it's part of the OS, it is what it is.  Perhaps you can find a photo app in BlackBerry World that would allow you to do so but I wouldn't hold out too much hope of that.
