    I'm hoping someone can help me. For some reason there is one folder in my picasa library that doesn't line up by date like the rest and I'm not sure why. I have all my folders organised by year and then place but this one folder never goes in the correct position even if I delete it then add it again to picasa. Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Have you checked the dates of the files in the folder?

    Hi Ikki,

    Sorry I should have explained it better. I have my photo albums names YEAR - LOCATION and then picasa orders them alphabetically however a new album starting with 2007 goes amongst the 2005 set. Even if they were sorted by date pictures taken then this album should be at the top as they were the last lot of photos I took.

    I do it in a similar way.

    There appear to be two factors that control the position. If you double click on the folder or right click and choose 'Edit folder description', a Folder Properties box appears. In this, you can set both the folder name and the date taken, both of which seem to influence the folder position. :)
