I am finding it difficult to browse through my photos. I have over 5000 pictures in SD separated in different folders by dates and events. So when every picture is shown in one view finding something is virtually impossible. Previous phones' galleries were able to separate pics by folder. Main view in current Gallery could be as is IMO but in Photos pics could be shown by album.

Also it would be great to be able to create own folders and move photos into them..

I'm amazed this is so low down on the list of priorities - folder support at the top level of the gallery is a MUST!

I'm wondering that there where no quality managment in the team to recognize that defect

I copy/backup my phone photos semi-regularly over USB. And it currently takes a long time just to bring up all the files in the folder (I have 2000+ photos), it would be very handy to split the captured photos into folders (eg. 2014-07, 2014-08, etc)

Over 350 votes and theres still no answers from jolla, a official tag from them or even a point on the roadmap.

If it's a surprise for Sailfish 2, just tag the tracked by jolla otherwise please give us a update.

The feature is planned to be started implementing in Q3, so sometime between July and September. Release schedule is another matter. You can follow the development roadmap to see what's going on in some scale.

I think they keep sneaking things in... :D I look at it every now and then and once in a while I go:"Oi! This wasn't here before! I'm dead sure! Very... Hmm.. Quite sure.. At least there's a possibility it has been added at a later time." :D

On my mind, we should be able to sort our folders by name or date or type (png/jpg...)
