Sort photos

By default, CleanMy®Phone sorts categories and photos as follows:

  • The categories are arranged based on the number and total size of files they contain.

  • Categories with the most items and the largest total size are shown first.

  • If categories include an equal number of photos, the one with the largest total size has priority.

  • Files within each category are sorted by date, with the most recent ones appearing first.

You can change how CleanMy®Phone sorts photos in the categories, what extra data it shows on the file previews, and how it lays out photos in the results. For this:

  1. Open a category either in Declutter, Organize, or the Sensitive folder.

  2. In the upper-right corner, tap the More button.

  3. In the open menu, choose the preferred options:

    • Sort by Date – sort files by date in descending order, with the most recent one shown first.

    • Sort by Size – sort files by size in descending order, with the largest one shown first.

    • Show File Type – show the type of the file (in fact, its category) in the upper-left corner of the file preview.

    • Show File Size – show the size of the file in the upper-left corner of its preview.

    • Square Layout – show square previews of the files instead of rectangular ones.

Note: CleanMy®Phone remembers the changes you make to sorting and viewing preferences, and applies them to each and every category in Declutter, Organize, and the Sensitive folder.

When you're viewing a photo full screen in Declutter (the Duplicates category) or in Organize (the Similars group), you can also change the order of the photos with drag and drop.
