    I got my HTC Hero in January of this year, and until now, have had my pictures from my old phone in a separate folder from the photos taken on the Hero. I decided that I'd like them all combined to better organize my SD Card. I figured that if they were all renamed sequentially, the Photos app would sort them by name. (IMAG0001.jpg, IMAG0002.jpg, etc...) I used Automator on the Mac to run a workflow that sorted all my pictures by creation date, and renamed them in the sequential format stated previous. This is the format that the new photos taken on the Hero had. Once I re-opened the Photos app, all of my pictures were sorted funny. I'm quite upset about this.

    I proceeded to modify creation and modification dates on the files, and still had the same sort order.

    Does anyone know how the photos are sorted? How can I modify the sort order? How can I manipulate my photos so they'll sort properly?

    I'd appreciate any help!

    I realized that some of the older pictures taken on my LG Lotus were acting funny, in that their dates were appearing on the phone as today's date, whereas in a terminal, they were reporting dates back to 2006. In any case, I just decided to put them in a separate album titled "Old Phone." Thanks for the time if you took any to look into this. =]
