    You cant really change how they are sorted but they should not be in random order. They should be ordered by oldes at the top to newest at the bottom.

    Smile Sort Order

    Soooo... if the iPad is sorting by date, can you change the date through modifying the older file names and reloading since the new files would have a different dates?

    They are in the correct oder in Photos, but when I select Slide Show they are random. What is "oldes"?

    I am sorry to be so obtuse - but how do I do de-select "shuffle" on the iPad? (or in the album on my computer) I am new at this. Thank you very much for your help. I look forward to a reply.

    On my iPad all the pictures play in the same order, every time. The only way to change that is to use the Shuffle option, which is in Settings/Photo. The 3 options there are "Play Each Slide For," "Repeat" and "Shuffle."

    Some form of organisation for photos is desperately needed. Let's hope apple will include some tweaks for the forthcoming upgrade.

    I had some web images I saved and forwarded via email. They are now "saved" and no obvious way to delete them. Aargh!

    Big time. My slideshow/screensaver is pictures of all the cars I've owned over the years in chonological order. The only way I could do this was to delete the pictures and re-save them in the order I wanted - a hassle.
