Bug Description

Design comment
- Currently after taking a photo and going to the 'Gallery' does not open to the last photo I just took, full screen. Instead it takes me to the 'Events' tab.

A couple of issues when opening the gallery from the camera:
- This is just a thought, but taking you to the Photos tab feels better when opening from camera
- If the gallery is already open, it doesn't take you to the Events (or Photos) tab, it just refocuses the app to the last view.

I'd imagine I'd want to open the gallery from the camera to view the pictures I've just taken.

Description of more or less duplicate bug 1195315

From camera, pressing the gallery icon should take the user to see the photo they just took, full screen.
Currently an oddity occurs : see what I mean by first viewing a photo in the Gallery, an old one. Now launch the camera and take a photo. Tap on the shortcut to the gallery app.

Agreed with existing bug description- after taking a photo, going to Gallery should open the last photo taken, full screen.

In the new camera design that will be implemented for RTM the camera app will have an embedded camera roll, so switching to the gallery will not be possible anymore. So I'm closing this bug as won't fix
