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, Instagram, Snapchat, Tik Tok 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.

**Update: The issue below was due to the not having a transitional effect between gifs. Tidbits it to fade fixed it.** I have had this feature for years on my old phones. However, upon getting a new phone, I noticed that GIFs no longer animate in slideshows. On my S21, they did, but now they don't on the S24. Online sources mention that this feature is not available in the "free" version, but I paid to remove ads. Was that not considered an upgrade?

Animated GIFs should animated in both free and paid version. If on your device they don't I suggest you contact our support so that we can investigate. We can not do it in this reviews section.

I like the features, especially the geo tagging navigation feature. Having mentioned that, might I suggest that you also do so for videos (unless it already exists and I haven't discovered how to access such). Also, perhaps instead of a map only you might have a thumbnail list, Samsung Gallery employs such a thing, however, they don't have a navigate to the site feature, just an overall picture of the site.

Thanks! I didn't understand the part about the "thumbnail list". Can you maybe send a longer explanation to our support.

F-Stop is one of the best gallery apps out there with many functions I am only finding years later. It is easy to start with and has the power to get work done when you need it. The author is quite helpful if you need pointers. However I am temporarily removing 1 star due to the lack of an edit button on the bottom toolbar. Thank you for the quick response. I now have the edit button back!
