Lost Photo Order in iPhone/iOS6

Lost Photo Order in iPhone/iOS6 - 09/24/12 12:52 PM

With the latest iOS6 and iPhoto for 10.7, today, I noticed that I lost my photo sort order on my iPhone 4s.

In iPhoto, I have all of my photos in descending order.

On my iPad with iOS6, my albums are still in descending order with the same albums.

I have removed all of the photos on my iPhone, rebooted, and synced several times without a change.

What happened and what can I do to change it back?

That seems to a common complaint, with no easy fix that I can see.

Maybe it's how you have them displayed in iPhoto, Events vs Photos or something maybe?

Thanks.

Well, nothing changed at all and I noticed that both my iPad and old 3G that I still have them in the proper order. I even went into iPhoto and made sure every album was how I wanted them.

I saw where there were other complaints. It was after I updated to the latest iPhoto.

Just to see what would happen, I synced my iPhone with iTunes on my work iMac. I had the same result of ascending order despite having them all marked descending.

With 1000s of photos, having the wrong order is frustrating.

The last iPhoto update did not address the problem. Appears many other have the same problem and are looking at iTunes.
