I have thousands of images sorted into folders - for example, photos from holidays, web comics by year, etc. Is there any image viewer which would allow me to display only images from a single folder, and then those images sorted by file name?

Someone, please modify one of the open source file managers to do a slideshow view of the folder content and everyone would love you.

Filetug don`t display my bigger picture file images as thumbnails( about ~ 3MB ). Pictures taken by jolla phone are visible as thumbnails ( about ~ 1MB ). Does filetug has a problem with bigger pcture files? Any ideas? Otherwise filetug is very fast and reliable.

I use QuickPic (Android app) for this. It allows you to add the folders you whant to view, and it does exactly what you asked for.

Neat trick, if a little bit awkward. You can of course add the path to bookmarks but I think I will stick to Filetug for the time being ;)

BTW if @rosapold did not like that Filetug does not show thumbnails of large files, he/she will definitely not a solution that does not show any thumbnails at all ;)
