I cannot force Lightroom for Apple TV to display a collection of photos in a particular order - Capture Time. The app seems to be displaying photos in the order they were originally added to the initial collection in Lightroom. (The photos in the Collection do update, however, because changes made to any of the photos does show up.) Here is what I have done to solve the ordering problem:
The order of the photos in Lightroom for Apple TV does not change. The order is still the order the photos were originally added to the synched collection. The order of the photos on the iPad and iPhone is correct. Plus, there is the option of changing the order by clicking on the title of the collection. This feature is not available on the Apple TV app.
I will unsync one of my collections and then create a new collection to hold the same photos. I will drag the photos enmass from the old collection to the new collection, then delete the old collection. I will sync this new collection to see if it will display the photos in the desired order on Lightroom for Apple TV.
Whether or not my Additional Actions will work, the fact remains that this behavior seems to be a bug. Does anyone have additional advice on this subject?
Hi William it’s not possible at present. But bear in mind this is an early release of Lightroom for Apple TV. I’m sure Adobe will be bringing forward the kind of features you are looking for in future iterations but for now the actions available via your remote control are limited. Have a look at Scott Kelby’s tongue in cheek FAQ where all the answers are no, including your question. Of course you can view in date or custom order on the iPad or iPhone until the TV version catches up.
