Question: How can I manually sort photos in an album of the Photos App using High Sierra?

Now, in High Sierra, it automatically sorts by date. I can change it to sort by title, but I can't make it so I can manually put the photos in whatever order I prefer. AND if I do get all the photos in an order I want (time consumingly I retitled all the photos with a number in front so the title sort would work for me) and I copy them and paste them into an iWeb site (Or export them to a folder) AGAIN I lose the way I had them sorted.


Anyone have a suggestion? iPhoto did it perfectly.


Thanks.

Answer:
Answer:

you can always manually sort a user album


as to putting the photos on other sites remember that the display order is determined by the site and the site user, not by you or Photos - all you can do is give the photos file names (use the title for the exported file name - do not copy and paste because you get lower quality previews and have no control of the metadata - always export so you have control) which allow easy sorting but if the site or the user does not choose to sort by file name there is nothing you can do - how they view the photos is totally up to them

Having th e same problem here - manually moving photos inside a "My Album" album refuses to work and the photos sometimes just move back when I reopen the album. Besides this problem, moving albums to a different position in the list does not always work and the albums seem to move back and sometimes go to the end of the list. But the main issue I am having is not being able to manually sort the order of photos within an album. The answers here that manual moves always work doe snot work for me.


Thanks in advance.
