I am trying to export photos of a wedding. I put all the photos in order I want to burn to cd but when I export them they are all out of order. The photos are from different cameras, iphones etc that I collected from family members. It appears that the export is putting all the different cameras used photos together.
How can i tell lightroom to ignore the image names and export my photos in the order I have sorted them in?
When you export unless you rename them, they use to existing filename and are at the mercy of how the operating system displays them! The only surefire way is to rename them with the same filename and followed by a sequence number in the order you have them in LR!
However as said previously, once exported, ultimately still depends on the sort by / display options of the operating system!
Wow Thanks for your quick response. I did figure out a way to do it in export.
check box rename to Custom Name:
in custom name box type: untitled.
then select export
Lightroom then labels each folder starting with untitled.jpg and so on! worked like a charm....
Pleased you have it sorted.
