Gallery app needs phone restart to show pictures

I am using /e/ on an FP3, updated to 0.10-2020081067148.
When I take photos with the camera app, the pictures do not display in the Gallery app, until I restart the phone. The Gallery app does display a blank placeholder for each picture, and I can select a picture (ie. a blank placeholder) to send (successfully) by SMS, for example. The picture is displayed OK by the SMS app (Signal).

I’ve not seen this reported by anyone else. Any ideas?

Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

Indeed I never saw the issue.

First you could go into Settings > Apps & notifications > See all > Gallery > Storage > Clear data.
This will reset the app and maybe it will solve the issue.

There is no ‘Clear data’ option, only ‘Clear storage’ and ‘Clear cache’. However, I tried both, without any success. The problem persists. :pensive:

I’ve always had the same problem, both on nougat and pie, but I’ve never solved it;
install Simple Gallery Pro, it works fine, and it is more customisable

Thanks, Claudio. That’s solved my problem
