    Hi guys,
    Im new on the forum so not sure where exactly this thread would go, hopefully im in the right place.
    I have a problem, well, more like an annoying situation with my Photo app.
    I've used folders (not iPhoto) from my mac to import my photos into the iPad, but for some weird reason Itunes or the Photo app itself organize them randomly, the way they want it, i guess going by the date they were created, not alphabetically, the way i want them to be.
    No matter how I try, the loading order into the iPad photo Gallery is unpredictable. I've used alphabetic and numeric file names, and none worked. Additional to this, there's no way I can manage to see what's the file names on the iPad once I've imported them.
    I use the iPad as a portfolio preview, and the sequence of the photos (and their filenames) are essential.
    Is there a way to this out there I've missed, or some inside trick with the existing software to control the names, content, and photo sequences of folders?
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Your best bet is to put them into a power point presentation. iTunes usage of photos is sketchy at best.

    I think that you may be able to do it by setting up a folder system on your iPad. I haven't got time to check it right now but if I recall correctly my photos load in the order I place then within the files.

    1. create a new folder, for eg. name it:
    iPad photos
    2. go inside this new folder and create five new folders and name them for eg:
    - Cambodia trip
    -Southern California
    -British Columbia
    -My Bentley
    3. drag or copy/paste pictures inside those five folders.

    4. start iTunes: make sure your USB is connected on your PC and your iTouch/iPad.

    5. in photo sync do the select a folder: find the folder: iPad Photos
    select that folder then click "apply" to start synchronize.

    6. when sync is completed, start your iTouch or iPad and touch photos, now all the five albums with pictures will appear.

    What he's saying though is, within the folder, even if he names the photos 1, 2, 3 they get put into the album randomly.

    Same problem arranging photos in folders

    I have the same problem. I don't believe there is presently a way to fix it. I have talked with iPad Technical and they admit as much. Recommend as many people as possible complain about this and hopefully Apple will provide a fix in their next operating system upgrade, along with providing printing. I think their random arrangement has something to do with matching people's faces, etc. I have carefully arranged mine in order with title slides and scans intermingled. All my title slides and scans end up at the end of the folders. I keep looking to see if there is an app that will fix it, but haven't found any yet. Having to use Keynote or Power Point would be a real pain, when simply numbering them should do it.

    I had my photos organized in folders in my PC. I used itunes to add these folders containing photos to my itunes library. When I synced my Ipad with itunes, the same folder structure got copied on to my ipad. I do not see the subfolder structure, but I can see the main folders.

    There is great room for improvement in the area of photo management on the iPad, because right now as far as I can tell it is just a frozen folder that you can look at but not change and not even search. I think with all the other stuff Apple did the photo end of it got left for later and of course we get the update in the fall for free but then we will need to pay for the next update that may contain the things we need to arrange, search and edit photos.

    APPLE PLEASE LISTEN! You MUST upgrade the photo viewing app, or provide a professional one. My wife is a photographer who got the ipad to show her portfolio at meetings. The fact that she cannot rearrange, or delete/hide photos within an album, DIRECTLY on her ipad is unacceptable.
    There must be an APP that is available for more professional portfolio viewing. Does anyone know of one? Thanks.

    Check out (photo sort for iPad) app. It costs a $1.99 but I think it will do what you are looking for. It was updated recently and helped with the user instructions that it really needed.
