Additional categories for Gallery

We could have another category in the gallery, e.g. Pictures, where everything that's not a photo or screenshot would end up. Right now all pictures downloaded from the internet, email attachments, album arts, default ambience backgrounds, etc., all that is shown in Photos which is not correct I think.

Ideally, it would be possible to add user defined categories and configure tracker accordingly.

Hello, Bluetooth transferred Pictures are also not shown in Gallery (Jolla 1, Hossa). Ciao Walter

This is really something that has been sorely missing from day one - just putting all the pictures from the camera application to its own folder/category would be a huge improvement!

Like this, it's all mixed together with any pictures you might save from the internet and random stuff Tracker finds when you transfer some new data, such as album art.

Not to mention, Tracker already has the data needed to implement this & this is apparently used for the Camera app backlog/linear gallery.

It's really a shame the Gallery app is not open source, as I'm sure this would be an easy fix for a community member but now it has to wait for someone from Jolla to be done.

could this be duplicate of ?

In my opinion the request here is a subset of the older question.
