hi all in here,

since yesterday I've got my jolla and I'm impressed. Also got a little "bug?". I can switch between predefined ambiences. But I can't create new ones with my pictures I copied on it or taken with the camera. Somebody else had similar issues?

Thx in advance.

Generally, you open gallery, tap on an image, then use the pulley menu to select 'Create ambience'. Same with any other image that shows in the gallery.

ok, utilities installed. but I still think - this will not solve your problem
it's some completely different

How's your memory situation? For example does new apps still install ok?

Thank you for you're answer. I already tried that. But that's my problem. If I went after creating ambience to the ambience folder there is no new one. I tried it with ten different picture but with no one I was getting an new ambience.

thx. But jolla camera photos should not be affected by this or? Sailfish on N4 was able to create ambiences without problems.

Did you already restart the device? Sometimes it's curios but most of my problems solved itself in this way

sadly I tried this. yes. I think I'll do a factory reset or wait for the next update. It's not a big problem for me. Only irritating.

ok. I collect the actual behaviour: -create ambience from own photos not working -change and choose one of the predefined ambiences not working -sailfishos-utilities not found in store to test above mentioned method -picture resizing for ambiences and then set / create ambiences fail

so I'm completely out of using ambiences BUT:

If I went to predifined ambiences and rate them to favorites / star I can change ambiences from the quick ambiences switcher. There it works but only for predefined rated ambiences. That's totally strange. Anybody knows why this happens?

update: After upgrading to opt-in version I'm able to switch between predefinied ambiences out of gallery how it shoul be. But still can't create new on.e Also cache store deleting didn't solve the problem. How cn I check if it's a case for the jolla support. The problem is still exists until the device arrived last monday. thx

I've found out that it's not possible to switch between all predefined ambiences. red train and baby flower not working for example. But camera and storm working. What's the problem...
