How are my photos arranged and ordered?
Your images (and folders) are arranged in alphabetical order.
So for example:
If you create a folder called Shoes and then you upload 4 files called shoes1.jpg, shoes2.jpg, shoes3.jpg, and 4shoes.jpg (note the difference in name format of the last example). When you go into that folder or if you create a gallery or portfolio from that folder, the images will display in this order:
IMPORTANT NOTE #1 - DUPLICATE FILE NAMES WILL BE RENAMED:
If you upload a file named shoes1.jpg and then later on you upload another file names shoes1.jpg , the server will automatically rename the duplicate filename and assign a random number such as shoes1674963.jpg so as not to accidentally overwrite the other file with the same name already in your account.
IMPORTANT NOTE #2 - AVOID SPACES OR NON-ALPHANUMERIC CHARACTERS IN FILENAMES:
Having characters like apostrophes (') and commas (,) and ampersands (&) and other non-alpahnumberic characters in your filenames can sometimes cause upload errors and in other cases cause them not to display properly. Spaces in your filenames will be replaced with a code like %20 which can cause links to not work properly in some cases, so it's not a good idea to have spaces in your filenames. Try to stick to just letters and numbers for your filenames. There is one safe and helpful non-alphumberic character - the underscore (_). The underscrore comes in handy for file naming, and can be use like this for example: shoes_blue_1.jpg
FILES CANNOT BE RENAMED ON THE SERVER - DO ANY RENAMING BEFORE YOU UPLOAD:
Need a fast easy way to rename a batch of image file names before you upload them? No problem! The free FastStone Photo Resizer software at
has a built-in BATCH RENAME feature.
So, with the FastStone software from
you can change a folder (on your computer) full of nonsense names like:
Quickly and easily to:
Which obviously helps with better image organization and prevents files from being renamed on the server (as long as your using unique names).
