Like any file system, files are sorted by either file name, date, size, etc. If you want a specific order for your files, sort alphbetically and then rename your files so they appear in the order you wish.

After we uploaded our HD photos into folder, can we view and have basic editing tools such as what we have on instragram ? We r all using 3rd party photo editor before uploading photos to Dropbox for storing or sharing. This wasted space on our external memory or internal hard disk. Also takes longer time. Why not just upload on Dropbox and edit directly on Dropbox cloud. And also, if audience wish, they can edit or re-edit the filters by themselves upon viewing the shared folder.

Thats the thing. If we cannot name it in that specific aplabetic manner,  we cant rearrange them in the order we wish them to be.

Why not allow flexiblity to cater to user's personal reason? Im suggesting to help improve.
