Is there any chance that I might lose photo quality by renaming photos several different times (JPGs, NEFs or TIFFs) or by adding more keywords (using Adobe Bridge or any other browser) with either individual or batch renaming - without making any edits or other changes to the photo?
Would renaming several times affect the photo's actual appearance in any way? With Adobe Bridge, you don't actually "save" your photos that I am aware of, but perhaps clicking on the "Rename" button is actually the way the changes are saved. Anyway, I know that there is data loss if you save JPGs more than once, so I am just wondering if renaming would also cause data loss and thereby degrade photo quality. Also, what about renaming from the Finder on the Mac? Same question.
I have noticed when I rename RAW NEF files (using Adobe Bridge) that it creates a sidecar, so I'm wondering how the name change is stored for a JPG. Thanks, Linda
