Moving photos to a different folders

  1. I just spent and hour resequencing photos in my Recent Post folder. I then moved them to the folder that I wanted them to permanently reside in. When they got to the new folder, they were in the exact opposite sequence that they were in the Recent Posts folder. This doesn't seem like a Christian way for the software to handle such a move. It is very tedious to resequence photos manually, especially when they are in the exact opposite sequence that you want them in. Do you have someone or some way to flip them?
     
  2. Christian way? What the heck does that even mean?
     
  3. Technically, it's #3 below, though these days most people would probably avoid such usage in this context. "Charitable" might be a better term. Sounds like a bug in the software rather than a feature...

    3. 3: commendably decent or generous <has a very Christian concern for others
     
  4. In the Jewish spirit of things then: go the finder in your OS (Winows or Mac) find the folder and appmy a different sort
    priority ordering. date, date added, date changed, size, file type, etc.
     
  5. All solutions are welcome whether they be from Yahweh (sp?), Allah, Jesus, Vishnu, or any other of the Higher Powers. My post was intended in the spirit that Bob suggests!

    In my experience moving images to different portfolio folders this has always been the functionality (i.e. the order reverses in the move.)
    A simple workaround which I use, is to move them twice through a transition folder I use "Holding Bay".
    BTW - I do think that a [Select All] function would be a good idea.

  7. Thanks, William. I'm moving you to my genius category!
    I am absolutely certain that V2 will have Select All/Move All :) I think this was the first time I had ever tried to move everything.
