Changing the image sort order in a gallery

Images will be displayed in the order they were first uploaded to a gallery. If you wish to adjust the sort order, there is the option to sort all images in a gallery by Title, Filename, or Date Taken. In addition to this the system also allows you to drag and drop images in groups or individually to manually arrange images however you like. 

Sort images in bulk by Title, Filename or Date Taken

NOTE: When a bulk sort is applied to a gallery, this will not apply to newly uploaded images. Galleries will need to be resorted using this process after new images are uploaded.

1. Navigate to the Library > Galleries area of your Fotomerchant account.

3. Open the Sort Images drop down menu at the top left of the screen.

4. Select the desired sorting option in either ascending or descending.

If you plan to sort the gallery by Filename, make sure to also check out this knowledge base article on naming the files to avoid potential issues with sorting files with numbers.
