    Renaming files - any clean way?

    I just imported about 35' photos and I realized I accidentally named them incorrectly. I can re-import them but I was wondering if I rename them in the finder will lightroom recognize the change - or is there some way to batch change them from within Lightroom itself? Thanks!

    RAW and effect of White Balance...

    Hi, I am having a debate with a photo friend... does the white balance setting in camera have any _permanent_ effect on the raw file when shooting?
