    Importing by Capture Time

    rngroves

      In importing photos to LR6 I want to change and customize the file name using sequence.   However, it seems to have a default of SORT ORDER for import instead of CAPTURE TIME.   Therefore, all my photos are now in an incorrect sequence.   How can I change the default to CAPTURE TIME?   Thank  you.

          There are two sorts to be done, one in the import dialog and one in the Library (bottom of the screen). They are independent of each other.

           

          There are reports that the sort order in the import dialog does not necessarily apply to the actual order that the files are imported in. If file numbering is important to you, you may want to use the "original file number" instead of the "import sequence" if you use LR to rename your files.
