Windows 7: rearranging photos in a folder in ad hoc order for slide show

rearranging photos in a folder in ad hoc order for slide show

I would like to have the photos in a file in an ad hoc order.
ideally I would like to drag and drop files into an ad hoc order, but if I read the forums correctly that is not so.


Two of us take pictures on a trip. I am able to sort them by the time they were taken.

I would like the photos to be in an ad hoc order for a PC slide show or when displayed on a TiVo slide show. I would like to be able to trace back to the original filename.

Is there a way to sort on tags within a folder? If so, Is there a way to add sequential tags to the photos in a folder. e.g.,
0010
0020
0030
so I could just edit the tags to create new order of the photos?
0020 ==> 0031

ALTERNATIVELY


Is there a way to add a sequential prefix to file names in a folder so that I can rearrange them? If the sequence number is incremented, e.g., by 10, I could rename the sequence number part of the new filename.

E.g.,
pic001.jpg ==> abc0010 pic001.jpg
pic002.jpg ==> abc0020 pic002.jpg
pic003.jpg ==> abd0030 pic003.jpg
img003.jpg ==> abc0040 img003.jpg
img789.jpg ==> abc0050 img789.jpg
xxxyyy.jpg ==> abc0060 xxxyyy.jpg
something.jpg ==> abc0070 something.jpg

then if I wanted abc0070 something.jpg after abc0020.jpg.I would just rename it to abc0021 something.jpg
so I could sort into this order
pic001.jpg ==> abc0010 pic001.jpg
pic002.jpg ==> abc0020 pic002.jpg
something.jpg ==> abc0021 something.jpg
pic003.jpg ==> abd0030 pic003.jpg
img003.jpg ==> abc0040 img003.jpg
img789.jpg ==> abc0050 img789.jpg
xxxyyy.jpg ==> abc0060 xxxyyy.jpg
