So, this is a long-running issue with Shotwell.  In our development
parlance, what you're asking for is called an Album.  This is an arbitrary
collection of photos sorted according to the user's preference.  It's
similar to tags, but tags are intended to be subject-related keywords.
Albums are just any photos put into any order.

Unfortunately, Shotwell doesn't have this feature today.  It's actually not
a heavily-requested feature, but it does come up now and then.

While that would solve my problem it is more than is required.  Just
the ability to sort within an event would be enough.

Thanks for the info, unfortunately I think that will mean I will have
to install Picasa for my relative as he feels he needs this feature.
Picasa seems to run ok under Wine.

Has nobody got any ideas on this?

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean there (my own lack of sleep might
have something to do with that). Do you mean sorting photos in an album by

Sorry, I should have been clearer. When one selects an event or tag in the
left hand pane one sees a set of thumbnails in the main window. In Picasa in
the equivalent display one can then drag the thumbnails about in the main
window to get them in the desired order. As far as I can see, in Shotwell,
one can only use View > Sort Photos to re-order them based on certain
criteria. Colin _______________________________________________
