I just can't find out how I am supposed to reorder images from one gallery page to another... Any help?

You cannot move a picture from one gallery to a new gallery by reordering. You need to add the media to the other gallery by "Add media". You can use the already uploaded media from the Library tab.

I think the issue was actually moving images between pages in a single gallery, not moving them to a different gallery. For example, if my gallery has 5 pages, how do I move an image from page 1 to page 2. The work-around we've been using for this is less than ideal (make the gallery have enough rows so that it all shows on one page, then switch it back). Any other suggestions/fixes?

Trying to find a work around for it that doesn't involve changing the number of images per page so that they all fit in one and then switching back to the previous settings.

@SKap Thanks for clearing that up. I think this should be moved to a feature request, as I do not think it is possible at the moment.

Currently i can only think of a solution in the multiedit or edit page of the media, to provide a way to move them to another "page".

Any ideas about solving this issue (in the user interface) are welcome.
How is this issue solved in other gallery-solutions?

In Node Gallery, which was what we used for galleries on D6, there was a gallery edit screen that displayed all of the thumbnails on one page, so you could move things around more completely with the drag-and-drop (it would be helpful to have an indication of page breaks on this type of screen, if this is a viable solution). That seems easier than having to go into each image individually, but would presumably become problematic if you had a gallery with thousands of images.

Issue summary: View changes

I *DO* have large galleries, and ordering *IS* a problem, so I have started Media Gallery Extras to scratch some of these issues. It's a sandbox for ideas that may be proposed for media_gallery, but is also a stand-alone tweaks module that can work immediately (because we need it now and would rather not patch media_gallery until at least a stable release)
