Unlike Windows Explorer and other file management utilities, SkyDrive permits the order of photos to be arranged into any chosen sequence. This makes putting together an effective slide show simple and easy.
Here are the steps for arranging a SkyDrive album
A new page opens showing the pictures in thumbnail view. The pointer will be the familiar four-pointed “move” shape whenever it is over a thumbnail.
Just drag any thumbnail into another location. As you drag other thumbnails separate to make room for the moved photo. Just drop it in the place you like.
But wait – there is more!
When you hover the pointer over a thumbnail a “select box” shows up in the upper right corner of the image. Just click to select it. After the first selection all the other thumbnails display their select boxes. Click on another thumbnail to select it. Click a selected image and it is unselected. Drag any one of the selected thumbnails to a new location and the other selected ones come along.
When the order is as you want it, click Save sort order in the title bar. You are now ready to share your album and your viewers will see it in the order that you have defined.
