Hi Roger,

KPA uses exif info to sort images. So, in the message you read, it ends by
asking you to go to "Sort Selected byh date&time" item in the "images" menu.
Doing it will reorder the images correctly according to the exif date and
will make the message go away.

You'll notice then that showing the images sorting by shooting date (exif
one stored in the photo).
