Oh my! I heard from far and wide, from friends and strangers: I want to re-arrange my Spaces Photos pictures, how can I do it? All I did was mention Photos and Slide Show in my last blog, and somehow struck a nerve. If you have not seen it elsewhere, here it is again: Our friends at Windows Live had been working hard to provide the tools and functions you want. Yes, you can, re-arrange the order of your pictures by just dragging and dropping.
Here is how it is done:
First make sure you have Silverlight installed. If you don’t have Silverlight, or are not sure, go here: Microsoft Silverlight – It will tell you if you have it, and let you install from there if you don’t.
Now, sign into your account and go to the folder in your Photos site where you want to customize the order. Click on Sort by: Then select Arrange photos.
In the new window you will be able to drag and drop – arrange your photos the way you want.
Note how the the photo you are dragging fades out and photos will spread apart and make room as you drag a photo to a new location. What could be neater?
