looking for a photo organizer
« on: November 30, 2012, 07:33:04 PM »
IDEA:  Anyone who's upgraded to a Windows operating system beyond XP, has notably missed the ability to freely rearrange photo's within a folder or album.  That this feature is apparently missing from all of the after-market and 3rd party photo organizers I've looked into, leaves me wondering what the big deal is here?

I am looking for a photo organizer - or a small app - that will allow me to override all of the standard, hide-bound arrangement options - LONG ENOUGH to allow the random reordering of photos by drag and drop - before renaming, or otherwise securing their preferred order, within their selected folders.

Would this be an app you folks currently offer?  Or perhaps a problem you might be willing to provide the rest of us with a solution to?

XYplorer file manager has this feature -
Menu >Tools >Customise List >Manual Sorting
then
drag n drop to sort.

I havent used it in a while - it doesn't seem to work with large thumbnails, but does work with the details-with-[small]-thumbnail view.

PS welcome to the forum :)
and what's with the I will not spam title ?!

Just following instructions for new post. (Say's type "I will not spam" in top box, then displays Type "I will not spam," in 2nd box.)

BTW, Thanks for the welcome,  and I was hoping to find something that would allow me to move thumbnails around.  :)

XYPlorer can do it all right:
By default, if you left click on a thumbnail, it will display at full size. This makes it difficult to drag! Go to:
menu >Tools >Configuration >Thumbnails >Turn off: popup image on mouse down (bottom of window).
Then try it as instructed above and it works fine.

someone else might have other ideas too.

sorry for pestering you but I'm really curious now :D
- what instructions/where?
EDIT/
I think it's just for new members - in the hope that they will not spam.
Donationcoder will hypnotise us for our first posts - look at the swinging watch and repeat "I will not spam" ... sorry, I'm getting silly now ;-)
