What algorithm is used to Sort Photos?

I've read a LOT of posts asking about the sorting order for photos within an album.
No one has yet to provide an accurate answer about the sorting algorithm/method used. Some people say to use iPhoto (I have a PC so I can't) which isn't an answer. Other people refer to editing some metadata. No one seems to be answering the main question:
What data is used to sort photos?
File Name (alphabetical) ?
File creation date?
File modified date?
Some (hidden) tag like an mp3 has?
It's gotta be something!
What is it?

Well, I figured it out.
It uses the Created Date to sort files.
On my PC, I use a freeware program called AttributeMagicFree
to change the created date and now sorting works as I expect.

  • What wallpaper is used in this photo?

    Anyone know the wallpaper used in this photo?

    First, I don't understand how that media fit into the paper slot on the printer.
    The font itself looks like it's based on an open or outline version of Wilhelm Klinsgpor; done by hand of course.

  • What is everyone using for a photo gallery

    hey everyone.
    i was just looking up a few ways to build a photo gallery and the way i am creating my gallery at the moment is using adobe bridge.
    recently i have been looking at other websites and i would love to use something more attractive and build into my website.
    what would everyone recomend and why? please link if you would
    many thanks

    Look at JAlbum software. 
    Lots of different skins (layout styles) to choose from.
    JAlbum creates thumbnails and HTML pages for you.  So updating  galleries & photos is a breeze.

  • What algorithm is used by Export module when resizing a picture?

    Is it using the same choices as Photoshop (Bicubic Smoother for enlarging, Bicubic Sharper for downsizing)? There are times when I prefer to use Smoother even when downsizing, as the Sharper algorithm results in over-sharpening (to my taste), but there does not seem to be a way to choose a specific one. Are there any workarounds for the lack of choices in the Export module?

    Rob, thank you very much for your suggestions.
    1. Yes, I had already selected no output sharpening.
    2. The pictures are not over-sharpened to begin with (at least to my eyes). The issue is that in my workflow I do a bit of selective (or creative) sharpening, beyond the capture sharpening, on the full size file as imported from the camera or the scanner. At this point, I can get prints from this file and everything is fine, I do not downsize for that. However, if I want to post the picture on a web site, or share it by email, I usually downsize it to manageable pixel dimensions (or required dimensions by the web site). This is where I thought the additional sharpening implemented by LR could lead to oversharpening.
    3. I'm not sure I follow you here, but I agree that post-processing after LR has already sharpened the file during the downsizing would not lead to an improvement. Is that what you meant?
    I should add that I have not done extensive testing with the LR Export module, so it may well be that, as you say, it does a nice job and it does not cause over-sharpening. I'll try it and see how it does. I was just asking the question because of my experience with Photoshop and the Bicubic Sharper choice when downsizing.

  • What is the use of Sort / Artist?

    Hi All,
    Can anybody explain what the use of the Sort/Artist information in iTunes? What I'm really trying to do is sort by artist more cleanly on my iPod once I download; so many albums have a main artist and then x number of guests so each of these end up being an entry which makes it a mess to find everything by an artist. Can the Sort/Artist info help me on the iPod or is it only on in iTunes?

  • What can i use to post photos to the internet?

    I tried Picassa and didn't particularly care for it.  The Apple Mobile Gallery is gone.  Should I be using some function of iCloud to make a photo album to share over the internet?

    Don't use Apple "web" anything, they tend to change things and pull the plug.

  • By what methood does the iPhone sort photos in the Photo Library?

    I would like to have all of our family photos get sorted chronologically in the Photo Library on the iPhone. However, much of our photos are from scans so they have the scanned time in the time stamp as opposed to when they were actually taken. If I manually put the time in iPhoto will that affect how the iPhone Photo Library sorts the photos? The iPhone doesn't appear to sort by name, so a method of renaming photos beginning with the date (YearMonthDay - 19920127) probably would not affect how the iPhone Photo Library sort them. Is there a way to do this?

    OK yes Loading apps are faster...But for some reason 4 got latency and lag once in a while compared to the 3GS...its not a zippy...its wierd to explain...but theres a lot of post about it here.
    Im guessing the A4 chip is not 1GHz since performance is not that big of a difference compared to the 3GS, Where as the 3GS was big improvement from the 3g and thats only less than 200MHz difference.

  • Use of Sort Field in equipment Master

    Dear All
    What is the use of SORT field in Equipment Master Record

    Dear Kumar Sahoo,
    This field is for identification purpose and generally give similar technical objects
    example:if you have so motors like lathe and drilling and lifting and milling etc thease all motors are same motors and if you want see the list you can give sor name then see, otherwise you have to give each number and find out
    some  more benefit is you can list sorting and unic identification of similar objects
    generally using internal purpose, i mean there is no relation of external procurement or warranty or any outside of company activiteis.
    Hope this may helps you

  • What algorithm does Excel 2010 use for Pseudo Random Number Generation (MT19937?)

    Does Excel 2010+ use the Mersenne Twister (MT19937) algorithm for Pseudo Random Number Generation (PRNG), implemented by the RAND() function?
    This has been a nagging question for some time now, with "hints" that it indeed does.  However, a relatively thorough search turns up no definitive documentation.  The most direct indication is perhaps given by Guy Melard [Ref 9] where
    he tests Excel 2010's RAND() function using the Crush battery of tests in TestU01 by L'Ecuyer & Simard.  Melard references a "semi-official" indication that Microsoft did indeed implement MT19937 for the RAND() function in
    Excel 2010, but this reference no longer seems to be available. http://office.microsoft.com/enus/excel-help/about-solver-HP005198368.aspx?pid=CH010004571033.
    The other references below [Ref 1-10] document the history of the statistical suitability of the PRNG and probability distributions in various versions of Excel.  This includes the Wichmann-Hill PRNG implementations supposedly (arguably) used in
    Excel 2003 & 2007 for random number generation.  But still, we have no answer as to which PRNG algorithm is used in
    Excel 2010 (and 2013 for that matter).
    Microsoft indicates that RAND() has been improved in Excel 2010; Microsoft states, "...and the RAND function now uses a new random number algorithm." (see https://support.office.com/en-ca/article/Whats-New-Changes-made-to-Excel-functions-355d08c8-8358-4ecb-b6eb-e2e443e98aac). 
    But no details are given on the actual algorithm.  This is critical for Monte Carlo methods and many other applications.
    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I found the same KB article:
    This was introduced (according to the article) in Excel 2003. Perhaps the references in notes 2 and 3 might help.
    The article describes combining the results of 3 generators, each similar to a Multiply With Carry (MWC) generator, but with zero carry. MWC generators do very well on the Diehard battery of randomness tests (mentioned in your references), and have
    very long periods. But using zero carry makes no sense to me.
    Combining the three generators only helps if the periods of the 3 are relatively prime (despite what the article implies). Then the period of the result will be the product of the 3 periods. But without knowing the theory behind these generators, I have
    no idea what the periods would be. The formulas for MWC generators fail here.

  • What is the easiest way to sort photos within an album.  I have photos from a trip but they are all mixed up.  Photos from one part of the trip are showing up in other parts.  Please help.

    I have a MacBook Pro laptop and am trying to use iPhoto.  I uploaded pictures but they uploaded out of order.  Photos taken from different locations on my trip are all mixed up and I would like to sort them in chronological order.  Things I have tried have been time consuming and often take several attempts before the moved photo "takes" to its new location within the album.  If anyone can provide step by step instructions for this senior, it would be very much appreciated.  Thank you.

  • What device can I use to transfer photos from Iphone5s. Don't want to use my computer.

    What external device besides my computer can I use to transfer photos from
    my Iphone 5s.  Do I have to transfer to my computer and then external device?

    Normally the transfer is to your computer, treating the phone as a digital camera. However, you can also enable Photo Sharing. Or use Box.com or Dropbox. Or a 3rd party app such as MyPics that can save them to a Google Picasa site, or Shutterfly that can save them to Shutterfly albums.

  • What software can be used to manipulate photos on original ipad

    what software can be used to manipulate photos on original ipad

    There are a number of photo apps available in the iTunes app store e.g. the free Adobe Photoshop Express can do some basic editing (you won't get anything as sophisticated as Photoshop on a Mac/PC), and with iOS 5 the Photos app will allow you to :
    Crop, rotate, enhance, and remove red-eye without leaving the Photos app
    Though I'm not entirely sure whether that will apply just to photos taken with the iPad or all photos in the Photos app.

  • When dragging photos to desktop, what settings are used?

    When a photo is dragged out of iPhoto and dropped anywhere in the Finder, what settings are used for that implicit export? E.g., what JPEG quality? It seems to export the full size.
    Can't seem to find this documented anywhere!

    In tests Old Toad reckoned that it was equivalent to about 8 on Photoshop's scale of 12.
    Typically when I export via the file menu I select the highest quality. If iPhoto uses something less than that, then I'll stop dragging and return to the file menu export.
    Doesn't quite work like that.
    If you have an edited photo then there is a single generation of compression applied. If you export at any setting other than Maximum the file will be smaller. At maximum the file will quite likely be larger - less compression applied to the data.
    As to which is best to use? Depends on what you're using this jpeg for - but remember this, exporting via dragging gets none of the metadata you've added in iPhoto (Keywords, Location, titles, descriptions etc)

  • What can I use to create a photo banner/collage that is free formed. I'll need background colors and ability to place 5 or more pics in a horizontal row? Does adobe have a product i can use to create this?

    what can I use to create a photo banner/collage that is free formed. I'll need background colors and ability to place 5 or more pics in a horizontal row? Does adobe have a product i can use to create this? I'm not looking for templates when creating.

    You can select 5 (or more images) and place them by dragging in Adobe InDesign. After creating document go to File > Place, navigate to images and select them. In InDesign start dragging and press right arrow key couple of times then release mouse button. You can export file as PDF, JPG, PNG image from File > Export.
