    Actually, I believe everyone is wrong.

    The space used is because the gallery has a trash can. It monitors files in the system, and if any other apps deletes data, the OP gallery keeps an encrypted copy in the trash. Clear the trash and you'll see all the space come back

    Also, that first image you uploaded is not the same.

    IMAGES is the TOTAL SPACE taken by image media
    The space listed in the gallery app is the CACHE (THUMBNAILS) of the app

    open the gallery app
    go to "collections" tab (in the middle, bottom)
    then scroll down
    open "recently deleted"

    This happens to me quite a lot, as I use Google Photos to control all my media, while OP Gallery app keeps all my data for 60 extra days after I delete everything.

    Worse part of all is that Google Photos also keeps a "deleted files" which means that when I delete one photo or video, both apps create a temporal copy, which means that, if I had a 50mb video, and I delete it, all of a sudden I have 100mb used, one by google photos and one by OP gallery app...
