    I have been scanning old pictures into iPhoto, adjusting the dates to put them in chronological order, and merging into events by years. In iPhoto, the pictures are in the order I want in each Event per year. However, each time I try to export the events to the Burn Folder in prep for burning to dvd, they arrive in Burn Folder all out of order! Instead of 1973 - 1974 - 1975 - 1976, they are all mixed up. I've taken the time to go to Photos and Adjust Dates on all of the hundreds of photos, yet that order does not transfer to a folder. WHAT do I need to do???? Really appreciate any help!! Thanks!

    I presume the order is alphabetical in the burn folder?
    If so you'd have to go into iPhoto and change the names of the underlying photos.I know you can do this but I haven't done it except on the odd one or two individually but I think you can for example rename them all with an increasing serial number.
    If I'm correct on that, you may be able to do something by renaming appropriately.
