    How can I sort albums by date in iPhoto?
    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.

    In iPhoto> View, there is Sort Photos. Included in the drop-down menu is Date. You can also choose Ascending or Descending.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    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?
