Hi! New here, hope i’m posting in the right place
I have a question regarding the importation of photos. When i connect my android smartphone, in PTP mode, it appears correctly in shotwell, i see my files, but i have a lot of “ghost” pictures (see screenshot), like more than regular photos. If i import all of them, they appear in shotwell, “real pictures” this time, but they mostly are thumbnails of my photos, cropped in size and with no exif or other metadata whatsoever. Some are from my “pictures” folder. Do you know what causes that and what i can do to avoid that?
To get some context i use a fairphone 3 with /e/, but i had the same problem with another fairphone with a stock Android, and if i remember correctly, i had this issue this spring while using an old samsung galaxy. I had this issue with two computers, with lubuntu and now elementaryOS, so i think i can say it seems to come from shotwell and not my phone or computer. But i could be wrong (oh, and on elementary, i have this issue with their version as well as with a fresh install of shotwell).
I did not have this issue a while ago, while using an outdated version of linux mint, and therefor an outdated version of shotwell (pre 0.12)
Thanks a lot for your help, and if there are contributors to shotwell on here thanks a lot for this soft, I otherwise love it!
