What does "following by" mean?
In this particular case, there is a sentence:

"Name the file with your last name following by title of the image."

Which one of these phrases should be used as the name of the file?

  1. LastnameTitle
  2. TitleLastname

    It sounds like a mistake to me. Following by doesn't make any sense. I suspect they meant followed by (which would make it LastnameTitle), but you would have to ask the author to be sure.
