I have been taking a lot of photos lately. I use the plug-in for the USB port to download from the memory card. When I go to review the photos, I find that each photo has a copy designated as XXXX (1). I hate to take the time to delete each one as unneeded. Is there something in the camera or laptop computer that is doing this? TIA.
Are they both the same date?
If the camera has been used a while and you are downloading to the same folder you may have "rolled over" the file counter. The camera will only go to 9999 and then it starts over, so 0001 and 0001(1) could be 9999 images apart.
I do that. I'm a freelance writer and photographer. I tend to take multiple shots of the same subject. I don't like to have bunches of photos on the camera. As I mentioned, I get two copies of the same photo. I try to select the ones not already downloaded. Usually all photos are new. I'll see if I can come up with the file as you noted. Thanks!
Yes, if you do not delete the files after you download some programs will "allow" you to download the same files over again. I missed that possibility since Lightroom or Apple Image Capture will ignore suspected duplicates/previously downloaded images. You can either reformat the card or simply erase all images after you download.
