I havent tested this, but it appears you can specify a filename yourself
using get_output_format().  Looks to be one of the accepted methods for

So maybe something like :

function adams_image_mod( $path, $args ) {
    $upload_to = wp_upload_dir();

    $img = wp_get_image_editor( $path );
        if ( !is_wp_error( $img ) ) {
            $rename = $img->get_output_format( 'some-new-name' );
            $saved = $img->save();  
            if($saved) {
                wp_update_attachment_metadata( $id, $data );

    return $img;


I didn't test this, its just an example - but Id imagine that is what the wp
devs put that in for.  (make_image() and save() also accept filename args. )
