Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

By default, f-spot orders photos in reverse chronological order.

However, slideshow goes in the forward direction, so when you try and view your photos in a slideshow, they are in reverse, too.

You have to turn on reverse ordering, for the slideshow to work as expected.

Steps to reproduce.

1. Start f-spot as a new user, or:
$ rm -rf .gnome2/f-spot
$ gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/f-spot

2. Then add some photos.
3. Try and watch a slideshow, and advance with spacebar.
4. Notice that the order is incorrect...

I feel I should add a "me too" to this bug because the slideshow being in reverse chronological order just managed to confuse my mother. She's good at finding usability issues :) I think the problem is that it's not very obvious how to reverse the direction of the slideshow.
