The current camera image preview / SFOS gallery has a big flaw in workflow.

Current workflow:
1. click image,
2. click to share,
3 swipe down within sharing menue for editing, delete options,

This single click / select then swipe within sharing menue is clumsy at best and doesnt reflect SFOS design philosophy (which is single hand swipe and gesture based mostly).

More intuitive workflow (true to SFOS spec):

  1. swipe down to share,
  2. swipe up to edit delete within image,
  3. click on image for image details (within camera app if you swipe left it takes you back to the camera, in file browser swipe left in file exposes file details, so again slight inconsistencies here).
edit retag flag offensive close delete


I support the first and the second point. The gallery has the worst design solution in whole sfos. However, how would you solve the returning to events view? Swiping from share menu, like now?

@Tomi_Ohl can you further explain "returning to events view" from gallery?

Returning to image would be swiping back to neutral position, so the sharing and edit menue remains sticky until flung back in neutral direction (middle of swipe up/down)

@DarkTuring Sorry, I meant returning to gallery grid view.
