Description George Talusan 2006-10-27 15:50:30 UTC
Please describe the problem:
When I export a set of photographs to PicasaWeb I can select an album in which the photographs will be contained.  After the photographs are completed, I view the PicasaWeb album and the photographs appear in the same order as they do in F-Spot.  However since this is an album I expect the photographs to appear naturally in normal chronological order according to the EXIF data.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Select photos with EXIF
2. Upload to PicasaWeb album
3. View PicasaWeb Album

Actual results:
The photos are in reverse order.

Expected results:
The photos should in chronological order with the oldest picture appearing first.

Does this happen every time?

As you yourself stated, the photos are exported in the same order.
You should change the sort order before you export View->Reverse Order.

Would this fix your problem, or you want the export functions to handle it automatically?

If so I would change this one to an Enhancement request
Comment 2 George Talusan 2006-10-28 01:22:06 UTC
Well the correct behaviour is quite ambiguous.  I could potentially see myself not wanting to use either reverse/forward chronological order and use the selection order as my desire order for uploading.  Preferably a selection in the export dialogs which lists { Alphabetical by file name, EXIF shot taken data, last modified date, selection order, etc. } and options for ascending/descending.
Comment 3 Andreas Heinz 2006-12-18 09:02:24 UTC
I second this. This problem is not only relevant for picasa export, but additionally for all kinds of exports.

I think many people have a reverse chronical order to view their photos in f-spot, but expect them to being exported in correct chronical order.

so i think an checkbox "export in chronical order", when main view is in reversed chronical order would make sense.
imho the only problem is, if people will understand that option.

At least Picasa web albums allows the user to sort pictures in chronological order. I don't know about other photo hosting services. So I agree it's not the problem of F-spot, even though this seems to be quite easy to fix.
Comment 6 Maxxer 2007-08-15 20:52:51 UTC
has this anything to do with the fact that files uploaded to Picasa gets the tmp* filename instead of it's original? Shouldn't this be fixed too?

easy to fix. do look at bug #345864 (and patch) to see how it was fixed for Flickr.

This should fix!
Merely copied from the other bug :-)
Comment 9 Stephane Delcroix 2007-09-12 19:19:08 UTC
you could do it in one line with :
Array.Sort (items as Photo [], new Photo.CompareDateName())
