    Am I a dummy, or is there not a way to reverse the date sort to show the newest photos first?

    Every time I open an album/moment it shows pictures from high school at the top and I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom to see recent pictures.

    What am I missing here?

    If you're a dummy there are lots more of us out here. There does not appear to be any way that anyone has yet found to change sort-order in Photos. This is a glaring hole in basic capabilities.

    Well that at least makes me feel better. I will admit that Photos is faster than iPhoto for my large library. So far I like it. Once you bring the sidebar back, its pretty functional.

    Have you figured out what that checkbox in settings ("Keep Sorted by Date") does? It is the only setting or menu option anywhere that i've found that has anything at all to do with sorting. I have tried unchecking and checking it in a few places, and it does not seem to alter the sort order in any way at all.
    In all seriousness, how in the world could a new Photos app not have something as basic as controlling the sort order? And the Preferences dialog from the menu.... could they possibly have less things in there to control? Talk about lack of options for the user. :(

    Where does it say that?
    I have "Keep sorted my title" under the 'view' control.
