You can install Sailfish Utilities and then use the 'Refresh media database' option, it should fix your problem.

Thanks it works with this, i am not happy with this version. I need to spend a lot of time with the phone now. May be i have to downgrade to the previous version.

This is an old and well known problem with the Gallery app. It was discussed for example here, or here, or here. Something wrong with image tracker and Jolla doesn't seem to put it in it's urgent 'todo' list…

You can install Sailfish Utilities from the store as @nthn mentioned in his comment, but in my case it rearly works, only rebooting helps.

There was some sort of bug in the Utilities that didn't invoke the tracker properly, but it should be fixed now see this answer:

Thanks @raketti! Missed that info!

@rburkhanov no problem, just remembered that there was a discussion about the matter. :)

i did a factory reset and it works again without the utility

@dglent Still I would recommend you to install them, there's some other useful things as well. ;-)
