how do i arrange thumbnail pictures within a folder

Hi guys n girls.
How can I drag n drop thumbnail pictures WITHIN a folder so that they are NOT arranged by date, name, rating, tag etc etc? I would like to drag, for instance, a thumbnail from the bottom row to the middle row and have it stay where I drop it
