I have bought a new camera on which I did not set the date (canon powershot). When I uploaded pics to lightroom they are in a completely random order. I thought that they would be in the order taken even without a date. I've tried sorting them by capture date in the library but no luck
Have you tried sorting by "Added Order" and, if you didn't rename the files, "File Name"?
I had tried Added Order but not File Name. File Name worked! Thanks so much for saving me about 3 days work!
Good. Glad it worked for you.....a good reason not to rename files in my opinion as if dates do get messed up at least you can get them back into the original order.
