How to View the Pictures in Android Gallery

[Solution] I Can’t View Pictures in Android Gallery

Displaying Images with an Enhanced Gallery ...To access images and videos stored on your Droid X, you start the Gallery app. You can find it on the Applications Tray. When the Droid Gallery opens, you see images organized into categories.

Today, a friend of mine found some pictures are suddenly missing on her Samsung gallery application and even in other image viewer. The strangest thing is that she could see them in the default folder where she save the pictures. So they did not gone forever from her phone, but decided to not show up in her phone Gallery. 

Way 1: Displaying Images with an Enhanced Gallery

Here's what you find in each category:

Camera Roll: Images and videos you've taken by using the Droid X

My Tags: Images and Videos you've tagged

Folders: All the camera's images and videos, organized by folder — one for Camera images taken with the Droid, one for images downloaded from the Internet, and one for images received via text messaging (MMS), plus folders created by any programs that you use to synchronize images and videos between the Droid X and a computer

All Photos: Every dang doodle image stored on the phone

All Videos: Every doodle dang video stored on the phone

Copy Protected: Images kept on the phone that you can't copy

Touch a category to open it and view the pictures or videos it contains. The media is presented in a humongous grid. You can scroll up and down by flicking your finger on the touchscreen.

To view an image or a video, touch it with your finger. The image appears in full size on the screen, and you can tilt the phone to the left to see the image in another orientation. When previewing an image, you can double-tap the screen to zoom in and then double-tap again to zoom back out. Videos appear with the Play Button icon. Touching the icon plays the video.

To return to the main category in the Gallery, press the Back soft button.

The Second Way: Show missing photos in Android Gallery

What cause this?

Well, it may also happen to you sometimes, when you have a file in the folder with the images not visible called ". nomedia", or "black looking folder", I'd like to call. With the folder existing, Android system will automatically avoid to display or generate any thumbnails in your Gallery.

How to fix it?

With that being said, fix this problem would be a walk in the park. If you have a file manager installed, and know what folder the image is in, you can navigate to the folder and remove or rename the ".nomedia" file. After that, restart your device. You should then be able to see the pictures as usual.
