    Did exactly as you described with "authors" and nothing happened...still out of order.

     

    I use a master folder list with folder names like 2012, 2013 etc and then subfolders for topics. I went in to each subfolder selected all photos and changed the author, synced, no result.

    That's because that method won't work. I'm not sure why he even suggested it since if you read his post he also mentions that the images are sorted via the date taken from the exif which is correct. If you want the files to sort via file name then you need to get rid of all the exif data otherwise they will be sorted by the date taken. You could also change the date taken to be sequential in the order you want but that seems more complicated than just removing all the exif data.

    For those in this discussion concerned with the "Sort" order, the criteria is in the "metadata" date that changes when you adjust the photos.

     

    The directions below apply to Lightroom

     

    To keep the order you created you must make an adjustment to "ALL" photos at the same time such as increasing the contrast by (1) point.

     

    First select and change the contrast in the first photo in your collection, then select the remaining photos, click "Sync" The "Metatdata" date will change on all photos selected and will then import in the proper order.

    This is completely unnecessary if you are using lightroom. Just remove the EXIF data on export and name the images sequentially.

    OK so I need to export them to the IPAD directly ?

     

    If I cannot export directly into IPAD then do I need to export to new folder and then sync?

     

    Now I will have two locations with the same photos, one with exif and one without?

     

    No matter how many times I sync pictures to my IPAD they never sort by Date Taken, it is alway by the METADATA DATE from the last adjustment?

    Just export them to a folder then put the images wherever you have the ipad set to look for images.

    I don't think it's possible to export directly to the ipad but there is no reason to anyway.

    Your lightroom library is the primary place for your images and it's where the full resolution images will reside. When you want to put new images on your ipad export them from lightroom at the appropriate size for your ipad (retina vs non-retina) and without exif data. Once the ipad syncs you can delete the files you exported from lightroom as they are on the ipad now. Should you ever need to add them again you can re-export from lightroom.

    I believe it is from the last change to the file. Been a while since I worried about it but if I remember correctly if I exported a group of images from lightroom then made a change to one of them in photoshop and re-saved it that would change the order.

     

    Also keep in mind this info may changed with iOS7. I don't think it did but I stopped using the built in camera app once I updated. It's completely useless for me now.

    If the question is how to reorder or organize the photos within an Album on an iPad running iOS7, this is what worked for me. Gently touch and hold a photo you would like to move and select "Copy" when the word appears. Then gently touch and hold the photo you would like the first one to precede. Select "Paste" when the word appears.

    Here is how I get my photos from my Canon camera to my PC then to my iPad 2 running IOS 7.1 sorted in the order I want.

     

    I upload from the SD card to the PC. Delete the ones I don't want. Rename the photos to get them into the order I want.

     

    Using the free PC downloadable program IrfanView I use Batch Conversion. Once IrfanView is up running type the letter b to start the batch program. Open the folder with the JPGs you want. Add them to the batch. Select Batch Conversion - Rename Result files. Under options uncheck Keep Original EXIF Data. This removes the date and gives all the photos the same date. Set the Name Pattern options to begin at 100 increment by 1 (or any other sequence you like). Make your output folder the one you use to upload into the iPad. Don't copy over your originals.

     

    Start Batch

     

    When done connect your iPad and synch your photos.

     

    After much time invested I've concluded that the iPad photo display sorts first by EXIF date and then by name. IrfanView allows you to change the EXIF date tag. If you have already renamed your photos in alphanumeric order then renaming in batch mode may not be necessary.

     

    I think I got IrfanView from Cnet.
