I’d love to have more explicit control over how images are ordered when you attach them to an observation on the mobile app (I use iOS). Here’s what it currently looks like when you go to select more than one image from your device’s photo library:
Obviously I’ve selected three images, but it doesn’t show me what order they’ll appear in the observation. Usually what happens is that the first image I tap on will become the first image in the observation, and so-on. That’s great, but I wonder if it’s more a side effect than an intended feature.
I propose that the app be modified so that the ordering is more apparent (and controllable), such as how Instagram does things:
It’s important (to me) because I do like to order multiple images in an observation. Quite often if I’m submitting an observation of a plant, I’ll put a more charismatic close-up up front and an overview shot of the whole plant at the end, especially if there’s a lot of other clutter in the image. Right now if you make a mistake in the ordering, you’ve got to go and reorder the images on the desktop site after the fact, and that feature is a bit clunky.
