My problem with sorting images manually

Apr 11, 2012 8:45 PM

I knows it's just me, so please bear with me, but I still have a problem figuring out how to sort images manually in Lightroom.

 

Before an import I try to drag around images and they don't drag.

No images are selected. I'm at a loss. I know is just me, sorry.
Thanks

    Make sure you are "grabbing" the photo by the inner image, not by the border.

    Also, be sure you have "User Order" selected in "Sort" on the bottom tool bar. If Sort does not show up down there, click on the triangle at the far right side of the bottom tool bar & select it.

    Also make sure you're in a last level-folder or a collection.

     

    Lightroom will not allow manual sorting in folders that have subfolders, collection sets or smart collections.

     

    In fact, Lightroom 4 even pops up a warning about that.
