Q: When/before I upload to SM I always change the file name, as for this image it’s “Archway Islands.tiff or CR2 (SM changes it to a .jpg) So if I go to that photo on the website and copy the link to send to someone it come out as this?
"wildfrogphotography.com/Animals/Popular-Images/i-zRx2kXp" thats Ok it takes people to the photo.

Wouldn’t it be better for SEO to have the file name at the end like this?

wildfrogphotography.com/Animals/Popular-Images/archway Islands.jpeg

Q: So whats the file name used for on SM ? Should I not bother to change it for SM ? just use keywords ?

I did find this long link with the uploaded file name in it, but will not open
