Hi all,

I recently control-clicked one of my albums in iPhoto and selected "Sort Albums." iPhoto proceeded to then put all my albums in order alphabetically...something I don't want! I thought I could undo it, but I can't and I can't find any way to resort my albums by date created. Anyone know how I can do this?

I'm using iPhoto'09 on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.8.

Thanks!

In iPhoto> View, there is Sort Photos. Included in the drop-down menu is Date. You can also choose Ascending or Descending.

Thanks for your reply, but your suggestion only refers to sorting the photos in an album; not the album themselves. I want to organize my albums, located on the sidebar, by the date they were created. Know how to do that?
