Flickr photo order issue

I tried googling this and can't seem to find an answer but is there a way to upload photos where the photos are shown in the order they were taken.

I went to a wedding and took some photos, want to upload them so I can send links to people but flickr shows them with the last photo I took first.

Instead of the set starting with some shots outside the church and if you click through you can see the ceremony and then reception and then everyone dancing and getting drunk, it starts with some drunk photos taken at 2am and clicking through shows you the wedding in reverse order.

Is there a way to show them as the event happened?

Add to a set, select the set in Your Photostream, then click Arrange, by date taken (oldest first), then save.

Cheers mate, I have been googling for hours trying to find out how to do this and was surprised no one else was moaning about it in the net.

Without doing what you said the slideshow played the wedding back to front stating with some rather messy 2am shots.

Re: Flickr photo order issue

Second question somewhat related to the first, is there a decent photo hosting place that will let you upload pics that are at least 2mpixels without reducing the quality?

Flickr magled my pic and reduced the size from 2mp/1.5mb to 600,000 pixels and 400kb size and the quality is really bad.

ImageShack is not really a viable alternative as I have massive issues accessing links here in the UK (from different PCs and different locations, one day it works, the next day it doesn't or clicking on the link 5 times only opens it once with errors the other 4 times) so that's not great.

Picasa and Photobucket only show the pics 400x300 by default and look like the sites were coded by a 5 year old so they're not great either.

Is there a decent place that sort of works like Flickr but also lets you upload decent size/quality photos for free and also lets you click from one large photo to the next without having to click on to and resize every pic?
It's not the money but I want to be able to send a link to people and not have them be able to see all my uploads which is why I don't want a place where I need to have an account with all my uploads linked together.
Imageshack would be great if it worked in the UK.
