How to Organize Albums Alphabetically in iPhoto

by Nathan Joseph

IPhoto is the default photo viewer for Mac-based computers. Prior to iPhoto '08, it was impossible to automatically sort your albums alphabetically. Previous versions required that you manually drag and drop the albums if you wished to sort them by name. In iPhoto '08, all that is required to sort them by name is to "Control-click" on any album icon and select "Sort Albums."

Open iPhoto. Click on the blue triangle to the left side of the "Albums" text to expand the albums tree.

Control-click on any album name contained within the albums tree.

In the options box that appears, click on "Sort albums," the second option down.
