I have sent a whole batch of slides/transparencies for digitising. The slides were in sequence of date/time taken.
The images have come back with filenames such as IMG001, IMG002 etc which reflect the sequence the slides were created.
However, when viewing the images in LightRoom 3 library I would like to tweak the order slightly; for instance swap the order of two adjacent images.
The problem is that when I click on 'user order' then the images seem to be shown in almost random order and I have to reorder them all.
Does anyone know that the initial image order is when you click on 'user order' for the first time?
What I would really like is for LightRoom to show the images in the last 'sort order' option sequence when 'user order' is first selected.
You don't need to choose Custom order, just drag the thumbnails to wherever you want them in the current sort order.
Drag from the image area, dragging the frame won't work.
The thumbnails should now stay in position, and you will see the toolbar having changed to Custom order.
Per Berntsen, brilliant - not even my huge Kelby Scott manual explains that!
