If you use Windows Photo Gallery, or IrfanView, or whatever image file viewer, it will present a series of images in the usual alphanumeric filename order. Often I wouldn't want to do that, but to present a series in the logical order of telling a story, as it were. Of course, you can easily rename images, but it's not quite so easy to rename a series and get the sequence right.
What I think I'd like is a program that presents a screen of thumbnails, or a bit bigger than thumbnails, and lets you drag and drop them into a visually pleasing order regardless of their current filenames, with, please, keyboard means of doing the same thing. When they're ordered to one's satisfaction, press a button that would rename/renumber them by prepending numbers in the new sequence to their existing names. That should make them play in the right order in any image viewer. As a valuable refinement, the ability to click or press Enter on an image and have IrfanView or one's preferred image viewer present the image full size.
Is there such a thing, please?
