All photos album out of chronological order

On iOS 11.1 When I look up a picture on the all photos camera album roll all my 5,000+ pictures show out of order. Ironically when I click on the photos tab they appear in order.

The problem is the following when using WhatsApp for example and I want to and multiple photos, when I click on the + button on WhatsApp it invokes photo albums where I expect pictures to be saved in chronological date order as the most recent would show at the bottom. This is not the case.

I use iCloud photos and sync them through my PC, via the iCloud app and iCloud Photo Library is checked. Is anyone else experiencing this?

"All Photos" shows photos in import order, so if you imported photos recently they will appear at the end of the list there, but will be in the appropriation location in the Photos tab.

Are you talking about within the Camera Roll? I had a similar problem where my camera roll when completely out of order. Here is the thread I started back in 2017 regarding this

Please note, do not follow Mr Brightside's advice in the thread, it never worked and he kept on posting it in many places as a fix. My best fix was using duplicate to manually reorganize.

Thank you so much, I will go over that thread. I would not be able to duplicate so many photos I have it’s just too many.

I would use the select tool to select hundreds of photos at a time and hit duplicate
Are you sure once I hit duplicate it’ll save that picture with original date “chronologically” taken? I would have to duplicate some 18,249 pictures so far...I still have another 5,000 I have not added for iCloud Photo Library to synchronize from my PC
