Q: I’m trying to organize photos in a certain order for a gallery

A: You can’t drag the photos around.

  • Dragging photos, to change the order, does not work with smart collections, since they are always refreshed, anytime it gets focus.
  • Dragging photos, to change the order, works in regular collections
  • For the slide-shows, create a “regular collection” with Make Virtual Copies enabled.

Lightroom: Create Collection With Virtual Copies

Lightroom: Create Collection With Virtual Copies

  • Then you can change the order of the photos by dragging them around.
