I just updated my iPad to the new IOS just released and I noticed that the sort order for the photos is now different.   I had them set so that the first picture (shown on the album) was a depiction of the contents.  Now it is no more.

 

Does anybody know the new sort order?

iPad 2, iOS 6

    Why does Apple insist on changing this?  It was goofed up way back when, then they finally fixed it and now here we go again!  My events are completely out of order and I can't find anything anymore as all of my photo events used be in alphabetical order and were easy to find...

    Same problem here, I have to say it's very annoying. I have just removed all my albums from my iOS devices, because they are out of order.

     

    However, which update is the cause ? The new iPhoto or iOS 6 ?

    Me too! It's infuriating!!! I spent hours ordering my photos by date, and now this!?! AGAIN!!! I'm so mad! Every time I update my iPhone/iPad the photos & videos go out of wack! What sort order can they possibly think makes more sense than date?

     

    All my videos seem to be at the top now, sorted separately from my pics?

     

    .....my folders however seem OK, as they were, it's just the main 'photos' folder that seems to be affected!

    I think that the problem is in iPhoto, if you use the folder metod in iTunes the sort is ok.

    The past time I had the problem using the Event of iPhoto but creating albums and sorted them I resolved the problem, now also the albums are afflicted by the problem.

    Ok, now doesn't work also for the normal folder.

    I resolved the problem with another method, I cancelled the information in the exif about the modification date and creation date.

    Now the sort for file name works in the event/album with iPhoto and also in the normal folder.

    Pquadrini could you elaborate on exactly how you did this?

     

    Thank you

    I used the program "A Better Finder Attribute 5" on Mac, cancelled the exif information about modification date and creation date of my photos and after in iTunes synchronized the event of iPhoto with my iPhone (I normally use the sort for file name).

    Now the sorting is ok.

    and also I have reimported in iPhoto the folders modified without the Exif information about modification date and creation date of my photos.

    You can try to follow my method described above with another software for windows.

    Try to remove the information about modification and creation date in your folders (start with only one folder just for security).

    We're you able to change these file attributes for pictures already in iPhoto, or did you have to change the originals and reimport them back into iPhoto?  If the latter is the case, that would be a nightmare for over 4,000 pictures and several hundred events...

     

    Also, I'm wondering if I might regret later on losing this information about my photos.
