Naming Scans

Tip

  • "Front" and "Back" should be appended to filenames of front- and backside scans accordingly.
  • If there are multiple scans with the same type append the number to the filename.
  • If the backside of the scan is solid white it is sometimes left out.
  • Do not use underscores or any other characters for spaces.
