Hello,
I'm interesting for the same feature for a long time :/
Each time we click on "sort by random" a new random order is generated.
Hey people, are we the only people who need this important feature?

If you add this feature, think add random with recursive folder view :)

We live with so many thousand of picture, ramdom is the only solution to discover new one correctly.

I don't find other good software to do that randomly.

Sinon encore merci (au seul dev?) Pierre-Emmanuel Gougelet qui continue d'ajouter un max de fonctionnalités et de fiabilité au logiciel, bravo pour le taf, t'es un fou :D

+1 I'm missing a Sort by->ranrdom, too - it would be nice to have a semi-static random image order without the constraints of the slideshow mode.

I'd use it for blind image selection (like getting the 'best' pictures for an exposition), i.e. I wouldn't be biased by an image sequence that I already know or that can be expected.
