You'd pretty much have to be a software developer to work this one out, it's just not sensible to most people. It's that you're sorting as strings of characters, not numbers.

Tony, after Thaking got me on track. I went ahead and batched the 250 pictures and it went exactly the way you said it would. When it finished, I opened up file and they were back in order. I expected them to be all jumbled up. I was trying out the 15 day trial on Nik Sharpener 3.0 and may I say that it is SWEET!


Canon 40D, Canon 20D, Panasonic FZ-30, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-300 IS, Canon 85 1.8, Canon 50 1.8 MK I, Canon 550 EX flash. Wishing for 135L:D !!!

Well, cool. Thanks toTim -- he was the first one who "got it". Maybe your travail will help others when they encounter this kind of thing. I just kind of mutter and move on when I run into it with various things:).

I disagree. I don't think you have to be a software designer to realise it. The first (and only) time this happened to me I was baffled at first - and then I realised that the computer reads the first number first, before it goes on to the others. I know next to nothing about programming and am by no means a mathematical genius, by it seemed perfectly sensible to me.:)

I'd say it's a matter of "logic" rather than "computer programming", and Roy I believe you are a man of logic, and good computer programming utilizes good logic, hence, Roy, you are a computer program. Assuming that a computer automatically translates numerical characters to numerical sequences is not logical (it would require too much programming from those lazy programmers and, therefore, most of us are neither logical or good computer programs.

I think that, buried in there somewhere, is a compliment! :D

Heh! Over here on the West Coast of the US it is literally early in the morning but I'm still up so it is late at night. So, anything I say should be construed as "humorous" in one manner of speaking or another:)! And, yes, Roy, I consider you as a man of humonguous complimentarianism:)!

In that case, any further comment from me would be superfluous!
