Users expect "images" to include images posted to forums.

My users think the feature is broken. There is a whole thread going on about it. I am having the hardest time explaining that gallery is only included. They insist it makes no sense.  I thought I should share some of the feedback.

"This new version makes it hard to view other peoples posts. Like for example i see one of the many beautiful girls has posted on a topic and i want to go to their profile to see all the pictures they have posted from start to present. I can't do that anymore with this new update. It's lame"

"Now we're getting somewhere. From what I can tell, that feature you say is missing is possible, but it's not implemented yet. If you visit someone's profile, click the "See their activity" button on the right below the header, then you can click Images on the left pane. I assume that is where the feature you want will be. @SuperJ707, can you shed some light on this? It doesn't seem to be working currently."

Yes, it's misleading. You are filtering the app, it should say Gallery, or Gallery Images, not Images.

I also noted Blog Entries should say Blogs, as it seems as if you are searching the "entries" only and not the comments as well, but you are.

I am going to edit my own language to clear things up as there's more confusion than that in stream settings. You may want to do the same.

A better solution for me would be if it did what people think it's supposed to do. Images should lead to any image a person has uploaded to Gallery OR Forums. That would make the most sense. Forums and Gallery need more integration.. this could be a simple start.

Yeah like an App folder that shows all images from all other apps, because you can upload an image anywhere. Status updates, Calendar. Could be a benefit to Gallery, as in, everyone gets an App folder but it shows all uploaded images from other apps. And they are stored (or shown) in this folder in Gallery.

Similar to some of FB's folders.

But the confusing language is still an issue, but I believe that will always just be for Gallery as it is technically an app filter.

Like in FB where sometimes you're using an app and images uploaded using that app go in that album. Or when you upload directly to your timeline there is a Timeline album for all the images you uploaded there, you don't have to scroll the timeline for them.

So if not an overall app album like I mentioned, even per-app albums.

So say a user has Gallery. Now, for the first time he uploads an image to a status update. A Status Updates album is automatically created in his Gallery with that image (and you can't delete from these albums directly). Or it could just be an overall "Other Apps" album. That would probably be best. But you get the idea. That would be pretty cool.

I too would like to see all images available in one place, Gallery seems like the best place for that! It's an incentive for the Gallery app, if you don't have Gallery then it just works like it does now with the other apps.
