Uploading photos in order

Question

I just purchsed photo show 6. I was trying to load a file with about 100 photos. All of my photos had been arranged in date order example 1956_wedding_0001.jpg. When I attempted to transfer them to photo show they went into some other order, yet to be determined. My only option seems to be to either re-order them or upload them one at a time. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Same thing happened to me. I took great care when I was labelling the 2600 images in my project. I tried several different incantations with no resolution. Roxio needs to fix this problem. One consolation is that SlideShow doesn't do this. But I have issues with that package as well. I'm running Creator Pro 2010 and want to insert Chapters to segregate my images. Surprise. I can't. The little incons in the left tool bar are not activated.

I am running Photoshow 6 and although I don't usually have hundreds of photos to insert in my productions, the fact that they are out of order doesn't seem to be a bother to me as I just click on the edit tab abd move them around to where I want them.But I can see if one tries to load a complete folder of jpg's and they come out all messed up and out of the order, to put them back in the order you want would be a chore, especially if you have hundreds. Is it possible you can give the photos a different kind of name that Photoshow would see as sequencial and in order ?? I'll have to play with that one and see.

I have experienced some of the same here. I solved it by using Adobe Photoshop Elements. Under File>Batch Processing. In the Batch box make any necessary selections>Folder>File Type>Image Size>

 

In the File Rename box you will see two choices. Use the first box and that will provide the ability to rename all of the selected files to a numerical number that will replace the original file name. If you use the second box it will rename the file with the number at the end of the original file name. I usually use a 4 digit choice but that will depend on the number of pics to batch.

 

And last, select at destination folder. To prevent mixing with the originals it while not completely necessary I would provide a new folder with only the converted files. When the folder is opened in Video Wave the files will be in the numerical order.

 

I don't know if this feature is available in Photosuite.

 

Hope this helps.

Don't use the Slideshow Assistant to create your Slideshows, you cut yourself off from all sorts of features such as creating chapters. It is a dumbed down program only good for simple projects.

 

BTW, I hope you are not trying to put 2600 images into one single project :blink:

 

Use Create DVDs (in C2010) and add your images. The Edit Chapters option will then be available.

Sounds like a good solution for "batch" changing the names of a lot of files Willard. That was the intent of my suggestion to find a way to insert a lot of photos in order. That would work fine in the Roxio "Videowave" program (EMC 9, 10 C2010 etc.) but not sure it would work the same in the Photoshow program. I'll give it a try and ses what happens. In any case, using a name for the jpg's that is just a pure numerical one would be good anyway just to keep them in a sequencial order. And btw, I assume we are trying to find a solution for the PhotoShow program and not one of the other Roxio programs. That could be a whole other thread.

 

 

EDIT:-- O.K., After a brief test, I renamed a dozen or so jpg photos I have to a numerical order and placed them in a separate folder. Then opened Photoshow 6 and started a new production. Added the photos, but the photos DID NOT end up in order when viewed. The only way I could get them in order was as I had suggested before---use the edit option and manually place them in order.

Red Wagon,

 

I missed the part on Photoshow. Sorry 'bout that. If you find that it does work in Photoshow there was one thing I should have mentioned. When Batching the pics in Adobe the program does replace the original file names. If one wishes to retain those original names it would be necessary to create a full set of pics from the originals and this including the renaming should be done before creating the slideshow.

Not a problem Willard. Just didn't want to get the original thread out of it's place. Gotcha on the batch changes--I have used that method before and know what you are saying.

 

Also, I neglected to add on my test that I did try both options for adding photos named in numerical order, to a new production in Photoshow 6 (see attached)

As far as I can tell, PhotoShow will always insert the images in alphabetical order when you select a folder or select a series of images.

What if they are not given a name that has a letter ? The ones I tested were all numerical in order and had no letters at all in their names ??

I use Roxio to import my photos from the camera. I have the option to create a common name and then Roxio simply inserts a four digit number (0001, 0002) in order. I edit my pictures and then save them in their own folder. When creating the slide show, I use the download folder option. I have noticed that I will have the photos be in basic order but there are groups that tend to get put in reverse order (descending rather than ascending). It is frustrating, especially when I like to take pics of my kids atheltic events and have a slide show ready to view that same day--having to go slide by slide to make sure of the order is a pain.
