Nikola version 6.2.1
See http://www.rogerbinns.com/galleries/2013%20Santa%20Cruz%20Day/ as an example and mouse over images to see unexpected titles
In conf.py I have:
USE_FILENAME_AS_TITLE = True
GALLERY_SORT_BY_DATE = False
Directory listing for that gallery:
01_The Boardwalk and beach.JPG
02_First of several old cars.JPG
10_One of several speakers at the Wharf centential event.JPG
11_They weren't paying attention.JPG
12_Prime sunbathing spot.JPG
14_Not many out on the water.JPG
15_View of boardwalk from wharf.JPG
16_Long marine lab lookout back into town.JPG
17_There were some birds.JPG
18_a lot of birds.JPG
19_Far too many.JPG
20_At the beach.JPG
21_Some surfers and those who climbed the barriers.JPG
It used to show whatever was after the number.
Possibly pertinent - I changed things so that my top level galleries directory is now a symlink to a directory in dropbox
The question is, what do you want those tooltips to say?
galleries/2013 Santa Cruz Day/01_The Boardwalk and beach.JPG becoming Galleries/2013 santa cruz day/01 the boardwalk and beach looks sanely.

The number should not be shown - it is purely there for ordering purposes as required by my two conf.py settings. In previous Nikola versions it was not shown.
"Galleries" is unnecessary and confusing.
The album title is noise when looking at the album page.
I would expect it to show only what is after the number, which is the empty string for some of those.
You mean the "Galleries" at the crumb bar. It's not unnecessary, it's the way to go back to your gallery list.
If by "the album name" you mean in the same crumb bar, sorry, that's the convention, the whole path is displayed.
AFAICS currently that page is not showing image titles at all, is USE_FILENAME_AS_TITLE still true?
he means tooltips on hovering images, not the crumb bar.
@Kwpolska good to know, yes, that's a bug. Easier to figure out when, you know, it's described all in one place ;-)
I'll fix tonight.
Does gallery sorting use exactly the same code (ie order on /galleries/ page)? I see an option GALLERY_SORT_BY_DATE but it isn't clear if USE_FILENAME_AS_TITLE also applies to galleries. Because I moved my gallery folders into dropbox the date from the filesystem is no longer reliable. Using exif data is more reliable but there is still the issue of picking the oldest, newest or average value when there are multiple files in a directory.
I think this is fixed now and has been for a while. A quick check of a build of the demo site confirms it: http://getnikola.com/galleries/demo/ has the correct tooltips.
