Hi, in Samsung Gallery how to invert slide action (done via Swipe with a finger) when viewing single images ?

By default, sliding to the left is bringing newer photos, sliding to the right is bringing older photos.
This is completely counterintuitive for a person in western-Europe at least: we write from left to right. So left is always associated with past, and right associated with future (same with painting, a person meaning to look at the future is looking to the right, and if the painter want to represent someone looking at his past, he represents it looking to the left).

As a result is really annoying to use. Especially when you have other image gallery applications that by default do it in a proper way. Regards

The photos are sorted in descending order and therefore they go from new to old.

Change the sort order to ascending to reverse it.

Both Samsung Gallery and Google photos have the same functionality and almost any other photo gallery app I've used all work the same. I'm not sure which gallery apps you use operate any other way.
