    So after the last iPhoto update, all my photos are jumbled. They used to be ordered from oldest at the top, to newest added at the bottom when I go to view all photos. Now they're all mixed up, not by date. Anyone know how to revert back to chronological order in the display-all mode?

    I've looked through all the forums and menus and can't find :-(

    Whichever album you are in, including the Photos one at the top left, you can go to the View menu in the menubar, then choose Sort Photos --> By Date.

    Is this not showing up for you, or are you trying to do something a bit different?

    Thanks for the reply. In all of the albums, this works fine, but in the "Library" > "All Photos" it doesn't give me any options when I right click. I suppose as a backup I could create an album and put all photos in it, but kinda a pain to have to update every time I add photos.

    Any other ideas\suggestions as to how I can get the Photo LIBRARY sorted by date like it used to be? Thanks!

    Which version of iPhoto do you have? I have iPhoto '09 and I'm guessing you have the next version?

    Yeah iPhoto '11, and it was when I went from 2009 to 2011 that these got dis-ordered.
