    Is/will it be possible to sort by EXIF date? I am not sure how are the photos sorted now (if File Date is creation or modification date) but those dates are often different than the date in EXIF which is the correct date when the photo was taken 🤔

    In the File Browser, the app only sorts by file date. The main reason is performance – reading the EXIF date is expensive for large folders (especially if you turn on the preference to show subfolders). Because the app doesn’t have an import function or a database for all images, it reads that information each time. I’d like to improve that in the future.

    I see, thank you for the explanation. I hope you can find some cashing mechanism or other suitable solution 😀
