Commons Upload Wizard ignores sequence of images
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

I've recently been uploading some series of images, using the upload wizard. They are numbered sequentially (with gaps) by the camera, (e.g. DSC_0123) and I am careful to select them in the correct order - but the wizard still randomises the order, meaning that if I rename the first, with a name ending "01", and use the tool "Copy title (with automatic numbering)", they are no longer in the correct sequence.

Others have reported the same issue; see:
