chronological order of photos shown

Postby tobbes » Wed Nov 11, 2020 3:26 am

Hello,

what is the right way to see the photos in chronological order from older too younger?
Is it depending on the exif datas (photo taken) or is it the file name that is important for the right order?

Thanks in advance

Hi Tobbes,
If you are using Google Photos as the source, then unfortunately their API only allows photos to be discovered (and thus displayed) in the order of newest to oldest. It is a surprising oversight that they did not build the ability to go the other direction. The shuffle mode was something we had to build ourselves.

Hi Tim,
...in the order of newest to oldest. ...
That means the data of the file itselfs? So newest file will be shown first?

Thanks

That's up to the Google Photos API. It does make a difference if you're filtering to album or date range.
