adobe photshop elements rearrange photos

I imported 136 photos into the organizer media page. about 20 of them are of the same person. I want to move those twenty to the end of the page so they can be at the end of a slideshow. I naively thought that I could just drag and drop photos wherever I wanted to. I guess simplicity is too much to ask for with ADOBE. After a frustrating attempt to research this in the guides I then went though a frustratng chat with 3 different chat experts. Their official answer was : 

"Thank you for the information. I understand your query now, and unfortunate I have to tell you that we can not move them manually, we can only rearrange them by sorting them by name, date , size and types."

Does anyone have a simple workaround for this? Thanks

There are features - not workarounds- that easily handle what you want to do in the Organizer.  Take a look at this article which explains  how to create Albums.  As stated in the article:

You can drag the photos within an album to arrange them in any order you want.

 

If you are talking about creating a slideshow in the Organizer, you can also click on the Media tab in the Slideshow Editor and drag the photos around to your selected order there.

John T Smith. I dont know what you mean. When I click on the link you shared it brings me to a list of ADOBE apps to pick from. I pick the adobe phtoshop elements and it brings me to a page that shows my question.

I just typed a reply and before I clicked 'Post" I decided to click "correct answer' first. Well then my reply disappeared.  Ill try again. So I was able to go into the slideshow editor after a i created a slidehow and was able to drag and drop whatever I wanted to anywhere. Great. I guess tech support could have told me that but they probably was tunnel vision answer to my question of how I can drag and drop in the organizer media view. Im going at a snails pace but thanks alot. Now all i have to do is figure out how to save what I dropped and dragged because I want to use a different slideshow. I know I sound very simplistc but this stuff aint so easy.
