How do you rearrange pictures on Flickr?

I've seen some users rearrange the order of their photos in their photo stream.  To me I would like to do that but I can't find the way so I have to accept all I can keep is photos in chronological order by upload.

Obviously it can be done, but how?
Every day is a winding road, you just got to get used to it.

It's easy J.P. - just go to Organize - then Album & Collections - then select the album - then hit arrange and then you can arrange how you wish.  Three step.

I would also recommend saving your work in Organize every few minutes. It tends to freeze if working in the same album for too long; that's a good way to waste 20-30 minutes of your time. The more photos in the folder, the longer it takes to load/save.

I don't think you can customize the Photostream, it either chooses "by upload date" (default) or "date of photos". Maybe it's changed? I tend to use Camera Roll a lot because there's lots of times I'll work on one batch of photos and move onto another midway, or "rescue" old photos for later uploading, which are completely out of order.

The way I do it is to give my photos titles that describe the scene of the photo, then I sort alphabetically.  So if I have a bunch of photos on state highways in Illinois, for example, I make the first element of the title the route where I took the photo, then the second element will be a crossroad.  Then I click "sort alphabetically" and everything appears in numerical order.
Avatar is the last interesting highway I clinched.

In albums, you can set the however you want.

But if you're talking about your regular default photostream? No. Those are all by date taken. You need to go into organize, and create albums and then set them how you want. And then you can also organize the placement of the albums as well (and photos can go into more than one album)
