Correct Date Order Photo Viewer - Downloaded Icloud

Postby NATURAL ANKLING » 22 Nov 2020, 1:02am

Correct date order photo taken, not mixed up when you download from Icloud :(
As most photo viewers seem to list in date created on the downloaded computer, not date taken.
Even if I upload from Iphone to computer I think it still comes out jumbled up.

So how do you manage to view your photos on computer that were taken on phone and then downloaded onto computer?
I am still using WIn 7 & 8 but plan 10 soon, Iphone is MK1 SE but has 13+ software.

With a Mac, you just do a CMD/I on the photo.
It'll tell you everything you need to know.

For info, this was the cruise liner we were on in the Med in 2014.

I can't remember how it worked before Win 10 but in windows 10 right click on the folder and select "Customise this Folder".
Then under "Optimise this folder for:" select "Pictures".
OK this.

Now in the list view you can right click on the headings at the top and add "Date Taken".

I'm pretty sure there are similar things for previous windows versions but without them in front of me I can't remember the procedure - but I'd start with "folder properties" and look in there.
