    hi all

    I wanted to organize my gallery into collectons but after starting to do it I have noticed that the pictures are NOT sorted into folders when connected to the computer, so I need to it all over again.
    have I missed a configuration somewhere (is it possible ??)
    if not, do you have a recommendation on a gallery app that do know how to do it ????

    10x in advance

    Collections are just logically sorting within the app using metadata, they don't actually move the original files into new folders.

    I know that and that's my problem
    i.e. in Samsung Galaxy S8 it does sort into folders.
    I prefer to use the default app instead of install in another one.
    any recommendations on an gallery app, someone??

    Also try to look for the Sony Album app, I am currently using it but couldn't find a direct link for now

    They added the feature. Make a custom collection. In your pc it will be under Pictures\MyCollections (not DCIM\Camera)

    Do you know in which version they added this feature? My phone should be up to date, but I don't have this feature and am desperately looking for it

    it solved
    i have the 9.0.4 version and it there
    in the gallery select a picture and then move to and it moves it to a folder under pictures/my collection

    Have you found that this is not longer the behavior in Oxygen OS 9.0.9? I assume that Oxygen OS is what is meant by "9.0.4", since the OnePlus Gallery app is up to v3.7.13 at this point.

    I have found there is no such process where "Move To" (which is only available to find in a single picture's top-right 3-dot menu) where it will either move it to or create a folder call "My Collections".
