It sounds like you are asking about arranging printed photos on different pages? How are the prints held in place? –  Avrohom Yitzchok May 1 '14 at 14:45
It sounds like you are asking for Psak. This would make it off-topic for us. However, if you want to know the parameters of Borer, and what kind of selecting and sorting are problematic (using examples like socks in a drawer, photos in an album, cards/pieces in a board game, etc.), it can be re-written to that effect. –  Seth J May 1 '14 at 15:29
@SethJ, you assume that someone knows that Borer is the likely problem. I think the question can be read as just asking what there is to worry about. –  Yishai May 1 '14 at 17:22
@Yishai, on what other basis would someone worry about a problem? The OP must have some reason to be asking the question. 'Uvdah DeHol? Muktzeh? In any case, it does appear like a Psak question. I was giving a suggestion to improve it and make it on-topic. –  Seth J May 1 '14 at 17:26
