I'm deeply surprised this isn't made yet. The lack of this function makes the use of gallery troubling if not impossible. I made a backup of a game folder which has ~200 images and the appeared in a gallery, oh dog what done'd. Also would be nice not to see album covers there. So i would like to ask for a "sort by" menu and a feature to hide some images/folders from the gallery all-seeing eye.

Yes please add an sort option. I have tried several ways to copy the pictures from my N9 to my Jolla phone, but still i found no way that in the end the pictures are sorted by date on the Jolla again. There is such a mess in the Jolla gallery, no chance to find anything quickly within the ~1000 pictures i have stored.

you can try the ".nomedia" file trick. Put an empty file with the name .nomedia into the folder and it should be excluded from indexing in the gallery. But I also don't like this trick so much since an app update of the game could delete this file again.

Oh yes. After many years there must be more users who need a sort and / or view option to organize images / photos.
