WOW - October 3rd I asked about order of photos and have no replies but I look now back and see many people complaining of similar issue. So - do I accept the pictures will all be mixed up from now on or are they supposed to be latest at the top (mine are not - they are mixed in the few cases that I've checked that are wrong) and is TP working on the problem? And where the pictures have gone into correct order probably many months ago, will they stay in that order eventually or will all pictures for everyone be changed to a specific order? (this is a difficult problem to explain : )

Thank you.

Whether it will help or not I don't know but I think your problem might be solved if you identify them numerically -

A.N.Other 01 1927

and his/her more recent pic. as...

A.N.Other 02 1967 etc.

I have always given my photos a date - and until recently they were shown in date order with oldest first. For some unknown reason that has been changed to newest first - can it be changed back??

Hi, Ted, thanks for your response -I do put the exact date in the top caption line and also down below where it wants a date. Some of my people have their pictures in 'my' perfect order (oldest first and newest at the bottom) and others have it all askew and any which way. Date order was working, but I will try one of the messed up ones and take your suggestion and add numbers and see if it makes a diff.

Thank you again, Ted.

Ted, here I am after trying your suggestion - I chose an album with only 4 pictures in it, added the 01, 02 etc. and there was no change at all. I have many pictures in many diff. albums and some of them are perfectly in chronological order and others are not - I really noticed the problem some time this year after posting lots of my mother's pictures and being careful to put dates on all and not being able to figure out what was wrong. I remembered that previous pictures I'd put in seemed to go in good order but I don't think I checked them all and some albums only had one picture. Are all your pictures going in correctly??? Thanks!!

Hi Delia as long as you have Dated them in the correct Date box, You simply go to the top right and select one of the three from

SORT by NAMES

SORT by PHOTO DATE

SORT by UPLOAD DATE

and they will now be in the Order Selected

All the best

Hi Les

I presume that you are talking about a having a choice of the order of Album photos, not individual profile photos.

I went to see what choice there was in my Albums - I did not alter it... but I noticed that if you select names that the photos get ordered by the individual Names attached to the photos, not by the Title names of the photos... See for example in my DNA Photo Album attached.

Obviously if I add an Tree relating to the MONCKTON Family, I was not expecting to see it in first position of all the DNA Trees, but the fact that I have attached EDITH ALFORD to it has resulted in it coming First, before eg. the COOPER DNA Tree - which ends up on Page 4 of the DNA Album. Oh what a mixed up mess!

I noticed that all photos without names (that I have used for Stories) can be ordered by their Titles... I decided to number 6 that are attached to a DNA Story and that has kept them to the top and keeps them in order on the story they are attached to. So that's not bad.

But the issue of dated photographs is not going away and for that reason I have given up now on this photo issue. It has become very complicated and very annoying when you are trying to give supremacy to clear images of genealogy matters like DNA Trees and Tree Charts and DNA Matches which do not require dates and can have many relevant names attached to them. Sadly the photos giving the detailed DNA Match information are not showing at all at the moment - See this link...

DNA Match details between Lucy & Katherine A Hand nee. Fernandez ...With Fernandez, Katherine A & Rumble, Lucy

https://www.tribalpages.com/tribe/browse?userid=p0tter&view=66&bview=64&mview=0&pid=19&bpid=19&photoid=6584406&rand=734539776

That image shows the fact that Amount of Shared DNA between my granddaughter and a new cousin, Kathy, we recently met through Ancestry DNA is:

56 centimorgans shared across 4 DNA segments.

This image is no longer alongside the relevant Treeand when you want to see the details in the image - they are not accessible now at all! So I suppose I will now have to go over all the profiles and type out all that information so people can see it! I have no time to do this.

Also see that 2nd link below to the attached missing image! As I say - the changes that have happened have brought about some very undesirable effects to my Profile Photos - many are not visible, if you want to see genealogical facts & details. I give up!

I am happy for those that are happy with their ordered Family pictures though - genuinely.

Enjoy!

Hi, Les,

Have gone to TP and checked one of my people's pictures and do not find what you are referring to. I see no choices or anything in the top right other than Sign In or lower than that is Find or Edit - I've got more than 200 pictures just guessing, and have never seen a Sort By. I'm obviously missing something.

Can u give me better details about where to find this Sort.

Thank you, Les. Appreciate your help!

Hi Delia see this Screen Shot Regards Les
Yes, Les, I did respond a couple of weeks back to you telling you I had found that place - - that was not the area I wanted to put in order, however, it was the individual album pictures that I needed in order.

BUT since that time I checked and maybe TP has done something to help because I found the pictures were in good date order when I checked them again. So until I get back on there I'm going to assume it's all fixed (with the exception they start with the most recent and go down to the older years - I kind of like to have them go in reverse but it's still workable.

Thanks again! Delia

Thanks Delia with the mess up of the TIME WAIT for MESSAGES from TP we do not know if we are getting answers or not.

I understand your need for photos in hte order that you say.

But

I maintain that if some one gets married you do not want to see her Birth Photograph First.

If you use an ALBUM at home you have no choice as the Album has been filled up over the years, so you have to put the latest LAST.

All te best

Les, I'm starting to think it depends on our individual brains and the way we are wired. I automatically think chronologically and so it wouldn't bother me to see the birth first at the top, then the graduation and wedding, death etc. in that order because my brain thinks in that order. But I can tell from reading other's posts that it really bothers them to see pictures that way so we need to have the ability to put them in any order. I do ALL my peoples' albums the same way even if I don't know the person at all and as people look thru my site they get used to the same order in all albums. Maybe this is not exactly what you are referring to but I'm assuming it is. Something else I do that my husband thinks is strange and he doesn't do with his site, is that under the Memo section for everyone, I put the birth record, marriage record, all the censuses available and then anything extra like military etc. then the death record. I don't use the Citation part as that is far too complex for my brain but I put my citation in that memo and it's real easy to do that way. And I use Stories for many people - if someone has not much information I put their entire life under Memo with citations.

So, see? I'm wired weird. Everyone is different in what they do and expect.

Hopefully you'll see this tomorrow : ))

Les, I found the Sort you referred to. It's on the Default Album.

I was wanting to sort the individual peoples' pictures in their own 'album'.

BUT - GOOD NEWS I THINK - I have just discovered that my pictures seem to have somehow sorted themselves and are now in good order with oldest pictures at the bottom and latest one at the top. I don't prefer that order but it's much better than having them all over the place.

Thanks again.

I still can't find the "Default" album and I do want to sort the photos in the individual areas by date earliest first to latest - it makes it so much easier: Birth,Marriage(s), death with others in between and it was like that until recently - who changed it? and why?
