Description of problem:

The long-press-on-image menu in the Jolla browser that currently makes it possible to save an image to the gallery should also contain an option to create an ambiance from the image. Saving the image first to the gallery and then finding it in the gallery to make an ambiance is needlessly complex and it might be almost impossible to find the downloaded picture in the gallery if it contains any untrivial number of images.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. have a typical Jolla that has a couple thousand images in the totally unstructured Jolla Gallery
  2. find a nice image in the Jolla browser, decide to make an ambiance from it
  3. long press the image (is this even documented somewhere ? I basically found about this almost by accident)

Actual results:

A dialog opens that makes it possible to download the picture to the Jolla Gallery. Select the option and proceed to manually go over all the thousands of images in the Jolla Gallery to find the image you have just downloaded to it so that you can make an ambiance from it. Provided the image is actually there, I have not been able to find it after downloading it from the browser and it not either on the start or end of the gallery image list.

Expected results:

There is an option to directly make an ambiance from the image in the long-press dialog.

Additional info:

There should be enough space for an extra option in the long-press dialog.

@MartinK How often you are adding new ambiences? I have to admit that I'm changing my ambience about once a year.

Sure, there is room left in the context menu. But as a somebody who seldomly performs this task I'm fine. An additional entry in the browser's image context menu would clutter this menu up for me.
