iPhoto can perform five sorts, or you can move images around manually, which is useful for arranging photos in albums you can use for books, calendars, and slideshows.
To sort photos automatically:
- When in any album, choose the desired sort method from the View menu's Sort Photos hierarchical menu (Figure 3.34).
Figure 3.34 To sort photos, choose the desired method from the Sort Photos menu.
- From the Sort Photos hierarchical menu, choose either Ascending or Descending to control the direction of the sort (ascending sorts go from oldest to newest, A to Z, 1 to 9, whereas descending sorts go from newest to oldest, Z to A, 9 to 1).
To sort photos manually:
- Drag one or more photos to the desired location in the album, as marked by a black line (Figure 3.35).
