Topic: sorting files ...theyre going all wrong!

hi im using the simlpe viewer basic version with photoshop cs3...ive been through the support files etc...
but i cant find out how to fix a problem im having..!
i rename all my images in numerical order...but simple viewer doesnt stick to this...
it puts 1, 10, 2, 3, 4 etc...
how can i do it so i dont have to rename my images ....and just order by date???
do i need to by the pro version for this??
or is there a way around this.. i was looking for buildgallery.php but i cant find this to sort by date..
please help ..as its ruining my chronological order for my photos! thanks!

Re: sorting files ...theyre going all wrong!

Hi,

the photoshop plugin does not support sorting options. So you can sort the images manually by editing the gallery.xml file, or you can try a different method to generate your galleries. I believe the buildGallery.php file will give sort options.

Re: sorting files ...theyre going all wrong!

hi thanks for that! i figured it out ...using photoshop!

so for anyone that wants to know how to keep the numbers in order..

basically.. rename all your image files ..using flash renamer / name mangler etc...
sort in order of date / capture time
then rename ...

but importantly ..make sure you prefix 2 zeros!!!!

then go into photoshop and generate gallery!!! and it works...

voila!
