Hi everyone,

I let my sister use our Oly-740UZ camera on her missionary trip to Africa, earlier this month. While there, she took almost 700 pictures, and wants me to input them into an electronic photo album for her. It turned out that her photos do not display in the order which they were taken. I don't know if there is a setting which should have been called up, before the photos were taken...or what. All I do know is that it would be a whole lot easier to do what she desires - if they were organized from the first to the last taken.

But now that it is after the fact, I hope that there would be some way by which to effectuate the proper order/numbering.

there is no special way to set up the camera .. the only thing i can think of why the pics are out of order from what she took is if she deleted some that she didnt like and then continued on shooting ...
i have a 740 also and that is the only thing i can think of

Thanks Marion,

That's what I kind'a figured, too. But it turned out that she did hardly any deleting at all. It's weird, because I'm not talking about just a few pics out of place. If it were groups of them scattered about, it wouldn't be much of an issue. But they are all over the place, and I don't understand what might have been the causative factor. It will be a matter, now, of sitting down before the computer, with my sister, and have her try to guess as to what order her pics were taken in. A lot of work (nearly 700 photos), but she's my sister, and I don't mind putting in the effort for her.

Thanks for responding.

P.S. I am trying to get a good handle on things before I finally get hold of my DSLR :-).

Hi NLAlston,
If the photos have correct EXIF info you can use the program Exifer to rename all the photos in meaningful manner.
Good luck!

Marn,

Yeah, this camera has indeed proved itself to be a gem. I can't believe some of the photos that have come from it. They are so vivid, so clear - and we are just talking about a 3.2 Megapixel unit. It is absolutely the best little P/S'er that I have had. The only reason that I a considering a DSLR, with greater Megapixel endowment, is because of the greater flexibility that such a unit would allow. I need something that would enable me to blow up some very large prints. Also, another drawback to this little camera is its very slow shutter speed. I have missed some (what I feel would have been) great shots because of the 'shutter speed' deficit. But the 740UZ won't be retired, altogether. It will truly serve a place, here with us.

Mguergov,

Thanks for that "Exifer" link. I have just downloaded it, and will give it a good shot.


~BLESSINGS to the both of you - and your loved ones~
