Why won't my photos sync in numeric order from my laptop to my iPad? It doesn't matter what I do, they have a mind of their own and load willy nilly.

the iPad will sort your photos by date modified (ascending) order.

The only way I know that can influence this is by setting the sort order in iPhoto or Aperture and syncing to iPad.

The alternative is to use a third party app rather than the stock Photos app.

Have a look at Photo Manager Pro. I'm sure there will be others too

Thank you very much. This probably explains it but seems like a flaw to me. This is like a book being bound in the order in which the author edited each page making the book virtually useless.

If I were to rename the files in the order in which I want them to sync, would that ensure image 1 appears before image 2, etc?

I doubt believe renaming updates the modified date as the file content remains unchanged but it's worth a test.

I agree the default app has limited appeal if you want to custom sort. Hence the iPad app suggestion
