What is the secret of the behaviour of the Gallery?

The Android system is indeed a very strange system in many ways. This eveneing I noticed that I have 10 jpg photos in the storage/dcim/camera folder using the Files App. I can click on them and view them. However, when opening the Gallery I only see 7 of them. There is obvioulsy no direct connection between what is stored in the camera folder and what is shown in the Gallery. Can someone reveal how this works? :rolleyes:

...come to think of it. I believe it's a problem related to the thumbnails. When you copy, delete and move photos manually between folders or by apps, the database is corrupted and the system must restore it somehow.
