Let the details page in gallery have the full path of a file please.

If you see duplicates you have a pretty hard time to figure out where the dupes come from.

Or at least the source of the image, meaning if it's from Camera, Pictures, email attachment or something else. If trying to hide the file system is important.

I concur. My Gallery is flooded with random images, and it's tricky to track them down only by filename.

as you cant share from gallery to sailorgram etc. it would be extremely helpfull to know the path, especially true with email attachments

@chemist can you take my Answer and integrate it into your request? I think the Gallery app needs a lot of attention! Or what do you think is the best way to get Jolla moving?

It is really a shame the Gallery has not been open-sourced - I would be willing to help fixing some of the annoying issues and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one...

@PatsJolla Coderus does a lot of things, but this patch was actually written by me.

Not being able to find a picture that appear in Gallery drive me crazy too !

Some quickfix that could be useful :

  • show the full path in details information
  • add context entry "copy picture path"
  • add context entry "copy picture to folder..." (so we could at least get our hand on the picture in a know folder)

Would be also nice to see folders in the Gallery App. It is really hard to scroll through hundreds of pictures when you know that the one you search is in a specific folder and not new...

Also it must be possible to see and send Pictures though Android apps such as Threema, Whatsapp, and so on. The Pictures you receive through these apps do not appear in the Gallery. Also for apps with photoediting it should be a standard feature that the Pictures you edit apear in the Gallery, so you can send them through messenger ap or Email-client. There are a lot of Questions and requests regarding these issues on TJC! We should build a Wiki an Vote that up!

Jolla stadard-apps are too minimalistic for regular use! That is too sad! They need MASSIVE improvement!
