I see by default iphoto orders events by the earliest date inside the event. That being said, i see you can drag and drop events to come up with your own ordering. Is there a way to reset the ordering back to "by date" if you have done a lot of drag and drop of events to different places

1 Answer 1


From the menu select View > Sort Events > By Date.

  • thanks . . to be clear, if I switch back to Manual will that remember my last manual setup or will i have to setup taht again from scratch (as some of the picture had incorrect date)?

  • I have just tested this and it will revert to your custom ordering. Assuming you don't do more dragging. So if you have a custom order, then sort by date, then click View > Sort Events > Manually, it will revert to your previous manual sorting.

  • Also, I suggest using Photos > Adjust Date and Time... from the menu bar if you'd like to correct the cause of your issue and not just the symptom.
