Sorting is easy enough. I don't see what needs to be solved yet

A few things could be sorted differently - but I'm with you. I don't see what needs to be solved yet, either. Come on leadfoot - help us!

Does it have to do with the fact that some of the pictures have a word in front of them to describe them (e.g. salad fork, black cat, albert einstein)?

Is that a salad fork or a dinner fork? Does the rope in the corner count?

The rope in the corner does not count.

That is the author's signature. (Dave Arnott - get it? R knot?)

The way I'm seeing it, all the clues are single words, which make a nice alphabet. Then I

Me too. I'm not sure how that matters, as no matter how you sort the words, you'll have the same set of 2nd letters.

Well, I got it (20th) by this really roundabout way that succeeded after a run through an anagram solver. Backsolving it, it seems kind of un-intuitive, but doable.

2. Bluto and acorns
