We took two cameras with us to Asia.  we intermixed photos from the two.  Now I have down loaded each file and I want to putt the photos in date/time order or sysc them to actual position on what was taken in order.  How can I do that.  I want to create an album with this as a final result.  How best to end up with that?

If the pictures are in the same folder, you can right-click on the folder name and Sort by … Date. 

If you select all your best photos and add to an Album, you can right-click on the album name and Sort by … Date.

Does that help?

Chris Yes that is very helpful.  One more unrelated question.  If you were buying an sd card.  Would the smaller micro card at the same speed be just as good as a full sd or is there a reason to go with the full?

Thanks again

Jim

From what I can tell, there is no real difference between the sizes when the speeds are the same. My new GoPro uses micro, the old one used standard sd. I usually buy the fastest ones available, copy them off and reuse them.

New go pro eh!

Have you seen these sticks or poles that have the camera two feet out from the user.  Great for shots above the crowd or a better perspective for selfies.  They were all over asia for go pros and iphones.  I assume they are available in the us but have not really seen them.  If you are not using a helmut cam or mounting it on a car (or skate board) then I think this is a really good thing.

Check it out.

Yes, we saw a couple at Crater Lake park the other day. Jim has a long, telescoping extension pole he uses for his GoPro when we’re scuba diving, but we haven’t used one for a smartphone yet.

It’s basically a monopod with an adjustable phone holder attachment. Here’s one from Amazon.
