I ported my entire music collection onto my Jolla's SD card, and they were all picked up properly by tracker so that I can see them in the media player. But all the album covers are picked up and show in the gallery, which I don't want.

Is there any way of configuring what and where tracker indexes? If not, there should be.

I ended up removing all my album covers because those showed up in the gallery. I really wish album covers wouldn't show up in gallery. Also I'd like to see default sound clips from maps app removed from All tracks listing in Media gallery.

Yes, so did I. Fortunately all my albums also have covers embedded in the MP3s

I agree. I even would go a step further and assign only specific folders to the gallery. Everything else is ignored. So you have one or more photo-folder for the gallery. All other pictures in other folders (like album cover, scans of documents,...) will be ignored.

This request seems to be quite similar to this one: https://together.jolla.com/question/2257/exclude-folders-from-gallery/

Agree. Definitivly should not show in gallery as default. Also seen this behave in my instacatimage client using QtDocGallery so I don't know if there is a solution to filter it out atm?
