I would like the names of the attached files to retain their original name. For example, if I attach an image with the name of a dog1.png then I should store it with the same name, and do not change it to a random name of many characters that have nothing to do with what the image is.

I think this add-on allows you to rename the file after uploading it, which is a bit tedious having to do it every time you upload a file. Can't add an option for attachments to be stored under their original name?

XF's attachments system stores and displays original file name out of the box.
What you are talking about is likely attachment hash. Are you using third party attachment add-ons or another attachment storage system?

installed and working:
  • (y) 301's built in to xf work
  • (y) image optimizer still fires (I use theme house addon with resmushit)
  • (y) Works with attachments on S3 using the xf adapter code
  • (y) buying from a non-English site was scary, but worked out ok. Used paypal for $2.50 fee.

Request:
  • it doesn't update the alt text to the new image name. Would be nice if it was optional to update it, and if none provided, use the new image name as a fall back
  • Would be nice if it also worked in the admin dash context as well, admin.php?attachments/ and as above, trickled into the post to update the alt text.

No, I don't use add-ons related to attachments. What I mean is that when I access the folder where the attached files are stored (I only use image files), the name with which it is stored is something similar to a hash, a long succession of alphanumeric characters.
