Apologies if addressed somewhere else. If I want to insert pictures into blogger from my S7 Google Photos, there appears to be no way of controlling the sequence if I attach several at once. For instance we took some last night of the Vegas strip but it inserts them in reverse order (end of the trip first). Am I missing something?

I think I need to know your step-by-step. Are you going to and creating a blog post? Then clicking on Insert Image to get your pictures?

Then what – do you choose Picasa Web Albums? or From your phone?

Blogger picks them up and inserts them in whatever order it finds them. When you use “From your phone” it is coming from your main photo library which is in reverse order – the most recent always on top. When you use Picasa Web Albums (this is Google Photos Albums – they just haven’t updated the name) it is in ascending order – starting at the beginning.

So – if you make an album first, with the photos you want to use in your Blog, it should work fine.

Does that help? Or do you do it some other way?

You can always insert them one at a time in the order you want, or drag them into order after inserting.

I do what you said from my phone. So, Ill try the album step for lots of pictures. BTW, I really have trouble dragging photos in Blogger. Strange things happen. And I have trouble position pix next to each other. But, that’s for another question when it aggravates me enough. 

Thanks! Albums it is.
