How can I rearrange photos in a folder into the order I need?

How can I rearrange photos in a folder into the order I need?

Explorer | Level 4

I am hoping this is an operator error as I am a novice at Dropbox. I have a folder created with 37 selected wedding pictures to share with the printing company  I need to rearrange from the time date stamp into a specific order as the photos weren't taken in chronological order and for the life of me I can't figure out how to drag and drop into the order I need. I did searches here and google and youtube and it shouldn't be this hard right? Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi there @elisa22, thanks for reaching out!

 

There are a few ways to sort your files in Dropbox, but you wouldn't be able to do this through dragging and dropping I'm afraid.

 

Since you don't want to sort them by the time stamp, perhaps the best method would be to sort them by name and rename the photos to put them in the order you need. Eg. "1 - xxx", "2 - xxx"

 

You can check out some more info on sorting your files here.

 

Let me know if this helps!
