About this app

Replace your clunky stock gallery with a lightweight, fast (even fun) gallery that works with you to organize all the photos and videos on your device. F-Stop is an alternative image gallery that provides you with professional tools and a clean, Material Design interface that makes organizing your photos easy.

/// KEY FEATURES
• Fully optimized for Android 8.0+ including material design
• Instantly search through all your photos to find results based on file name and metadata (tags, ratings, camera model, etc.)
• Browse through your photos on a map with an integrated Google maps experience
• Save tags (keywords) and ratings[1] in XMP format so they stay with the image and can be read by popular programs such as Lightroom, Picasa, Aperture, Windows Live Photo Gallery, digiKam and many more
• Read metadata directly from your images (EXIF, XMP, IPTC)
• Custom sort images using drag and drop[1]
• Choose one of the many themes or choose your own color combinations to make F-Stop look the way you want
• Nested folders[1] let you browse your media using the folder structure (explorer view) instead of the typical flat view seen in most gallery apps
• Access your favorite tag, folder or album directly from the navigation drawer with our "Bookmarks" feature
• Smart Albums allow you set up simple rules like “Tags with the word Family” or “Ratings greater than 4 stars” and then updates automatically as your library grows.
• Exclude folders easily to prevent album art from showing up in your gallery
• Easily plays animated GIFs
• Share and/or edit with popular apps like Snapseed, Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and more
• Hide images and videos from other apps with password protection
• Slideshow mode with popular transition types

[1]These features can be unlocked in the PRO version.
[2]F-Stop will scan for these file types but viewing is dependent on device support.

It went from no ads to constant ads. I can't say it's unusable, but I'll definitely be looking for something else now. It's a shame because I really liked this a lot. Edit: Okay, the banner ads are much more friendly. I'll probably buy the pro version to remove them but the full screen ads were annoying enough that I was going to uninstall all together. Glad they take feedback.

Due to many requests we have switched ads from full screen to banner ads. Let us know if you prefer that.

Downgrading from 3 stars to 2. App does not update to show new albums/folders EVEN WHEN YOU USE F-STOP TO CREATE THE NEW FOLDER. Tapping "Refresh" doesn't help. Sometimes it takes closing and reopening the app several times. It's maddening to take 30 pictures of an event, create an album for those pics, and then have the very app that created the album not show it as a selectable destination. SEELEYE: I did install another gallery app, and IT works. Your snarky note now gets F-stop 1 star.

Before blaming it on F-Stop, install another gallery and see if it will update those folders immediately. It could be that app which is taking images is not updating Media Store correctly, and apps which use Media Store to get images don't see images. In F-Stop, change scan type to custom in "Settings//Main//Included folders". . Luckily

I really like it a lot, the ratings and metadata make organization easier. Only issues i have with it is it changing the order of images when moving them with this app or the image order being read differently despite it being in the correct order when viewed in a different app.
