Hello Joop

Please see our FAQ Forum post "How do I share my photos in Revel" http://forums.adobe.com/thread/115799...
You can change the order of the images by adjusting the date or event for that image in your album.
For additional helpful information regarding Revel , please see our main FAQ Forum http://forums.adobe.com/community/ps....

Let me know if you have additional questions
Thanks

"You can change the order of the images by adjusting the date or event for that image in your album." This is something you recommend? Really?

It's frightening to see an official answer to the question about sort order is to change date and time of photos.

I actually meant to write just by event & not date. I am not able to edit it.

The ability to set a custom order for photos in an album is an important one. If you intend the album to be used to show your photos then it is likely that some will not be best in the order they were taken. It can be done in Google+ and in iPhoto though not in either Revel, Flickr or Shotwell. Altering dates is just all wrong.
This means I will use iPhoto/Google+ until Revel has this feature.

When you change the date in Revel in track view it is only adding that date to be viewed in Revel. The changes in Revel are non destructive as the original exif date will still stay the same.

Hi Joop,

There isn't a way to define a custom sort order currently. All of the sorting is done by time and date. You could manually alter the time/date but I wouldn't recommend it. This is a common feature request so hopefully more options around this will be added in future versions.

Time and date is a good first sort (I guess). But why is it backwards in time (latest first)?

Ok, I see the choices for Newest or Oldest first.

Please help me use revel online, since I cannot use on mac OS10.6.
I would like to have features similar to those in photoshop.com. I cannot even rearrange my photos in revel online.
Can revel site be used without downloading app?
Thanks

The albums from Photoshop.com have the picture order messed up, mostly just backwards, but some have a complete scramble of order. Also, some photos were rotated 90 degrees. I don't see any facility to edit these albums so they can be straightened out again.

Ronald-

Sorry about the troubles. How many of the photos migrated were rotated? Had they been edited in Photoshop.com prior to migration?

Pattie,

The rotated photos were edited in PSE before being uploaded to Photoshop.com, and they displayed properly before the transition to Revel. In the Photoshop.com album building facility you could drag and drop the photos to edit the order in which they are shown. In Revel I can drag a photo to another position, a + sign even appears withing the dimmed image being dragged, but when dropped there is no change.

Thanks. I'll look into the rotation issue. Currently you do not have much control over the sorts, but there have been many suggestions as to how people would like to see it. There will be improvements in future versions.

Thanks

it appears the rotation issue is camera specific. In most cases, the rotation is as expected. There are some where if the camera is upside down, it does not rotate, but if sideways it will.

No all of my albums are complete - some picures are missing. Also they are not in the correct order.

Being able to change the order of the images in an album seems like a pretty basic task. It just boggles my mind that Revel cannot handle this (this was an easy thing to do in ps.com).

I'm also a bit upset that when the albums were transferred from ps.com to Revel the order of the images was not preserved. Now I have a lot of work ahead of me in getting the images in the correct order....well, if it were possible to set a "custom order."

Color me not happy at all with Revel.

I just moved all my photos from photoshop.com to revel. Where are all my tags? And can I search by tag?

Tags you set in Elements will not migrate to Revel. We hope to improve support in the future, but I can't promise exactly when.

Revel is not doing some things that should be first, For instance a user cannot move his own photos from one palce to the other for a custom order. Also there is no way to see the name on any of the photos. Get with it Revel!

You have said that photos can be ordered by "event". However, I can find no way to enter an "event" for a photo. How is that done?

Sorry for the confusion. The events can not be accessed on the browser version of Adoberevel.com. It can be found on the apps. On my iPad, in the view album by date screen,click on the date and you can edit or add the event name.
