    I was hoping you wouldn’t like my roundabout solution to the problem because it involves photo editing techniques which people are not always familiar with. You need to have a smartphone with any photo editing app installed, especially a collage maker.
    Apologies for using your recent coin photo downloads as an example but it involves placing all of your multiple photos onto one big canvas to make a photo collage. It’s not an ideal solution because some of the photos look pixelated when downsized. It probably works best with four photos.

    The owner of the LCS I frequent opened a second shop about 30 miles from my house.  It was opening day today, and since it was my day off, I drove over to check out the new store.  I took over a six pack of beer as a store warming gift, and planned on making a modest purchase to celebrate the new shop.  Of course he put a more significantly priced item in front of me that he had recently purchased that he knew I would have a hard time refusing. 
    1989 Double Sovereign.  No box or COA, but he gave me a great price on it.  And also bought a nice 1891 Jubilee Shilling.


    And I ended up being the first paying customer at the new store.

    I’ve experienced the same problem. What I do now is not really a solution which is to stitch multiple photos together into one big photo and post that way.

    I think this is a major first World problem!  But you are absolutely right- very annoying.

    Thanks @richatthecroft for the link to get this amazing Angry Birds Cupro Nickel coin.
    There was a good offer on at the time, you buy the Angry Birds coin, and you get the "50 Years Of The 50p Anniversary Coin" free.
    Not sure which coin I prefer 😁
    TBH I wasnt going to get the 50p but I gave in to the links peer preasure. Although it does look rather good up close 😎

    Thats what I have to do but I dont like the look of all the pictures joined together. 
    It sounds petty when I word it like that, but it is annoying 😣

    Aye, happened to me on the recent one - I number mine in order too when i upload them so it's not name-based.
    I removed them from the post and then chose them in order from the storage at the bottom of the page, to be in the right order.

    This is the case- I’m not sure if they upload by file size? or time order the photo was taken? 
    In any case, my workaround is to upload them and order them myself, clicking on each photo in the order you want/need them to appear. 
    In any case- I need a better camera.

    When uploading pictures and posting, the pictures dont always submit in the same order you uploaded. Is this due to file size or something? ie largest file 1st etc?

    Ive used them a couple of times. You get to build up "Points" as well. I've got £6 worth at the moment 😀 I never though of using them for this particular 50p.
    The Angry Birds coin came free with the 50p, I suppose that justifies the extra £10 they charged compared to the RM but I'm not fussed, I got the coin 🙂
    Hopefully will be a winner in the future 👍

    Yes- good firm to deal with- like the loyalty points idea- Can't complain about the Birds coin- there's not a lot to not like about freebies!  Nice one.

    Aah yes- I remember you telling me you had to buy the 50p to prevent Forum members coming around your house with the thumb screws and Black & Decker's ready to kneecap you 😂
    Not sure about Angry Birds, but enjoy 😀
    It was @arshimo2012 who first tipped me off about the Island Stamps & Coins website- they are worth accessing if the RM sells out quickly- and great service too.

    I used to store in tubes - but then I realised that even bullion coins sell quicker if they are in decent condition - and if like me, your plan is to sell the bulk after retirement, which could be 10-30 years from now, you never know how much premium these bullion coins will have if in decent condition. So in capsules they go, and then the capsules in labelled tubes.
