When putting on the new filter, dip your fingers in the new oil and smear them round the rim of the new one. Also pour some oil in the new filter before you put it on. This helps with oild pressure. If the filter is fitted vertically, fill it to the top. If its at an angle then you might lose some oil when you tighten the filter.
Garages tend not to do this, but it is best practice and therfore should be done if you have the time.
