When saving images for web usage it is important to adhere to a naming convention or folder structure to keep your files in a logical order. When working on large web designs you can quickly lose track of file names and where they were saved. I thought I would share the convention I am currently using to organise my images.
As well as these folders I also like to name image files using prefixes. An example of this is icon-help.gif, bg-sidebar.gif, btn-approve.gif. I find that by using this structure and image prefixes I save a lot of time trying to remember where certain things are saved when I am writing my CSS and HTML.
As well as saving time when writing the code it also provides a baseline when re-using CSS code. I can just save the image using my convention and the CSS can already be written.
It would be good to hear other ways and ideas of naming images.
