Sorting photos

First off, I love FastMail’s file storage system. It’s way better than Dropbox and it’s not even FM’s primary product!

Something I can’t quite figure out... How does one sort photos in a photo album?

I understand that photos are sorted by filename, but then a photo’s *title* appears to override this. So I can number the files as 01..n but then if I want to change the title to “Steve” and another to “Alice” then the ordering will get messed up.

Any ideas?

Being able to specify a file sort order for images is something I really miss. When FM did away with that option and chose filename and title I was disappointed, but they did seem to keep my old sort order selection until the change, as can be seen here - The 'sort by title' way is fine for my usage of another photo gallery I have here though since a username is used for the title and an alphabetical sort order is fine - FM support told me that being able to specify a file sort order for images would only be available the filename and title way now. So I might change the title for a gallery's photo by prepending the title I actually want with 001-, then 002-, ...
