Gallery: swipe and rules for range of time in timeline view

Hi everybody,

I would have two questions about the default Gallery app in /e/OS.

In Gallery you have a view which is timeline.
For timeline, the photo are grouped by a range of time. In my case, I have the following range of time:

  • 08/18/2022 to 12/01/2022
  • 01/03/2023 to 01/14/2023
  • 01/21/2023 to 02/09/2023
  • 02/09/2023 to 02/10/2023 (today)

How are computed the ranges of time to group the different pictures? I don’t see anything logical right now.
If you have some inputs, they are welcome!!

My second question is still about timeline view.
So your pictures are group by range of time. The stuff is that (at least on my device), When I select a picture in a range of time, so it open the picture with full screen view of the picture.
Now I can right/left swipe but until the limit of the range of time… With left/right swipe I can’t go from one group to another group of pictures in this timeline view. Is it by design or a bug?

I hope my explanations are clear enough :wink:

Thanks in advance for your inputs & help!
