    Hi

    I have noticed today that something has changed.

    I am using Photoshop CS 5 on Windows XP Pro.

    When saving images for web (for my proofing system i do which is saving photos of cars i.e CAR-10_01, _02 and so on then CAR-22_01, _02 and so on when i get to the part of selecting where to save i notice each time i save photos they are now appearing in the order they are saved as apposed to the order of name of the photo like they used to.

    I have tried going to the folder and arranging by name it works in the folder fine, I have tried doing that on the small window when saving through PS it shows the files in order by name then but when i go to save the next photo it goes straight back to arranging them by modification which is a pain as certain files in this case care numbers are appearing all jumbled up as apposed to in car number order.

    I have tried everything i can think of but it keeps reverting back to showing me them in order of time i have saved the files. Last week it was not doing this and i was seeing them in order of file name.

    I hope this makes sense and someone can help me please?

    Regards,
    Jon

    what folder are you using


    Most windows folders Documents, Pictures, Videos , music etc have a standard default
    Goto your Pictures folder (note - NOT the library).
    apply all the settings you want to
    then use the Organize button,
    select >folder and search
    Select >view tab,
    >apply to folder button
    > then Ok

    For each event i do i create a new folder within the folder containing all my images. e.g( Event a folder inside i have 1 folder 'Photos' another folder 'Proofs' another 'Processed')
    When i view these folders and click to arrange by either name, size, type or modified whatever i click is what i get, That part of viewing is fine.
    The problem occurs when using Photoshop to save to any folder it just sees the order of the images i am saving into the folder 'Proofs' as a modified arrange which is no good to me as i need to see them by name so they are all in order.
    When in Photoshop saving i click to arrange by name it works but as soon as i go to save the next image the order is back to arranged by modified.

    Regards,
