I would be happy with N9 like functionality, for me it was a much used functionality. especially the way it stored the original pictures in a separate dir

Wanted features:

  • filters
  • option to hide original from gallery by default
  • reduce red eyes
  • improve colours
  • resize image(not crop)
  • rotate / angle
  • customize the behavior after editing to one of three options: a) always ask whether or not to keep the original file b) always keep it c) never keep it.
  • When cropping, allow for adjusting the size of cropped rectangle
  • "Sort by" option in overview, e.g. date, file name, size etc.
  • ability to edit .png files
  • ability to exclude certain folders, e.g. album covers
    • Add possibility in Galerie to create sub-folders in the Photos and Videos directories

Exactly. N9's editing app is good plus the feature I would love to see that the original picture is not lost when we edit a pic. We can go back the original pic whenever we want.(In fact we have both pics at a time in N9)

"Save as" is also a good step.

How about a function to overlay easy a e.g. IMEI or other secret infomation with a box

n9 had options to put a filter on it, reduce red eyes , improve colours, resize image(not crop). very basic options but they made life very easy

Add possibility in Galerie to create sub-folders in the Photos and Videos directories to sort photos/videos per events.

if not enough karma to edit the question and add this request to the list; instead of answering, you could have posted it as a comment to the question.

Or OP list all the features as separate answers to vote for the most desired? :/

In line with many comments to the OP asking for each feature to be listed as a separate question/answer for independent voting, I hereby present the one I desire the most dearly:

  • resize the picture

That should also be the easiest to implement so it seems like a good start.

  • When cropping, allow for adjusting the size of cropped rectangle

This, please. Every time I take a photo I crop it to highlight some detail, but with the fixed rectangle it's quite difficult

I often need a possibility to protect sensible data like faces, serial numbers, IMEI, MAC-Adress etc. on the photos.

Ability to share several photos at once -- When the user selects several photos in Gallery, the only option currently available is "delete". Adding a "share" button enabling for example the upload of a batch of photos to Dropbox would be great.

temporary workaround for some of these is imagemagick commands via terminal. Not quick or easy but at least doable.
