This is a nice-to-have function, especially for clients.

When the SEO team goes through the site, it would be a lot easier for them to rename the files than download them (which isn't easy to do right now either) and re-upload and re-reference. Good feature to add.

@ericwenger I found a way to "hack" this feature at least for all images generated using Glide

  1. I've created an addon ( to include the filename in Glide URLs
  2. create a custom fieldset called "asset" - like the following one:
title: Asset
hide: true
    display: Title
    type: text
    instructions: The display name of the asset.
    display: Alt Text
    type: text
    instructions: An alternate name for accessibility.
    type: text
    display: Filename
    instructions: null
  1. Just change the file GlideVanityUrlBuilder (from my addon) to use the field filename instead of basename()

I'm outputting every image with glide (as it can also be called without any modification parameters), so I can always show the image name I want to have. By putting the filename inside a grid or replicator together with a locale field (i.e. select) you could even localize it. The current locale can always be referenced by $GLOBALS['locale']
