Photos won’t let me sort photos
Photos sucks. It seems that iPhoto wasn’t too bad after all; it had its faults, but at least I could sort my photos how I wanted them. In my case I have thousands of photos grouped into albums, these may have been taken over long periods of time, so the date I took the picture is irrelevant.
With Photos, I can’t do this. Images have to be sorted by date, which is no good to me. There is a workaround but it involves dragging all photos into the order I want them. I don’t get why there’s no ‘sort by title’ option. Am I missing something here? Steve Rodgers No, you’re quite right that it’s not there. Sorting options, including by title, will be added to Photos in the version bundled with El Capitan later this year. For now, you could try to fight the app’s current limitations, perhaps by creating separate Smart Albums for each letter of the alphabet and matching all photos whose title begins with a particular letter or phrase.
I agree that it can be very annoying when a feature you used gets taken away. In this particular case, though, it’s missing because Apple has rebuilt its photo library software from scratch, and the feature will return in a few months time – that is, as long as you are willing and able to upgrade to a new version of OS X.
Photos currently has much less flexibility than iPhoto for arranging pictures within albums. You’ll need OS X 10.11 to regain some sorting options.
