Need Software that can reorder and number pictures for a slideshow

I'm frustrated with LIghtroom CC, it no longer will let me reorder pictures. I'd appreciate suggestions on software to do this.

Thanks

How do you want to order your pictures in LR ? The default is by date/image number but there are alternatives.

Faststone allows you to drag images into an order, then batch rename them.

Look at the navigator panel on the lest in LR Classic while you are in Library mode, it probably has "Previous Import" highlighted, select the folder you are in and you can re-order them, it will work in Develop too once selected in Library.

That's what I do in Lightroom CC.

It's not working for me. Drag and drop isn't working. At first I was able to move a few and now nothing.

I've downloaded Faststone, this will be a great help for the project I'm working on.

I use it as my photo viewer. It has some handy features.

Just be aware it is not a fully colour-managed software. if you only work in sRGB this should not be an issue.

I'm using LR Classic 9.4 and have no problem reordering image files in the Library Module (Grid view) or in a Collection. Actually, the prescribed technique for building a slideshow in LR is to put all the images into a collection, then ordering them as you wish via drag and drop.


I don't use the mobile version often and never use the cloud app. I wonder if the issue is limited to those versions.
