Filenames for event graphics (posters, banners, flyers)[edit]

Order of info in filename:

  1. City
  2. Year of the event
  3. Month
  4. Day of the event
  5. Event name or acronym (GMM). (Optional).
  6. State, province, or nation.
  7. Number (2, 3, 4, etc.. If more than one image for a city event in a particular year).

The key is to put the city and year first in filenames. This way the posters, flyers, and banners are sorted by city and year in categories. See example:

Filenames for photos of event participants and crowds[edit]

Same as above, but add "crowd" or "photo", etc. at the end. This allows scanning of categories, folders, and directories on and off line, and being able to tell by the filenames alone which files are graphics, and which files are photos.

Link to, or upload, posters, flyers, and banners[edit]

Return to top.

Upload file. Upload link is also in the left sidebar of every page on the Cannabis Wiki.

You can also share images on the many GMM Facebook pages.
