I don't prefer cloud backup because of high priced internet plans in my country, and the answer by Lord Ralf Adolf didn't work for my device somehow. Ultimately, I had to find a solution which is supposed to be no pain only gain. Here we go with one mentioned below. Notes: The solution requires a USB cable, MTP enabled (available in Android 4.xx and 5.xx) ...

Google decided to remove the Gallery app, replacing it by the "Photos" app.

This same thing has happened to me and I've only had my s6 Edge a little over a week. I went through each file in my files and device storage and deleted ".nomedia" files. All of my pictures are now back in the gallery.

I have a G4, and you're right. The Gallery app doesn't have a confirmation message, just a floating dialog that has an Undo button which disappears after a while. I'd recommend using another app instead. I use QuickPic. When you click the delete button, a popup with a delete icon appears. It serves as sort of a confirmation message. If you click the ...

rename the album cover to "folder.jpg", and it will be skipped. You can save the rest of the album art in a nested folder with ".nomedia" inside it.

the answer is you can't ,because the "preview" button action is hard coded in the stock camera app as a link to the right activity in the stock gallery app it sends an intent with the path to the jpeg image to the stock gallery ,the link is not an intent that can be received by third party apps ,even if you try deleting the stock gallery app the preview ...

Take a look at Titanium Backup, it will backup all the data saved in the Contacts app and Gallery app and you can either transfer it to a new phone, or extract the sql-lite db's contained in the backup and (hopefully) get your data into a spreadsheet or something. (as mentioned here) An alternative method (without root) is to use the adb backup command. ...

You may want to look into some EXIF editors to edit the metadata of those images (specifically the time). I can't name any great editors in particular, but there are plenty of apps and programs available as I looked through. If I find any good ones, I'll be sure to tell you the names of them. Best of luck!

Updated answer: Check if you have a hidden file named .nomedia (double check also for uppercase name) on device memory (storage folder) and delete. Go to Settings > Apps -> ALL -< Media Storage. Select Clear data + Clear defaults. Disable the App. Reboot the device. Now enable again Settings > Apps -> ALL -< Media Storage. Wait a couple of minutes ...

This very much depends on how you upload the images to the device. In order for the gallery app to pick them up, they must be added to the "media library", which is the job of the media-scanner. So that one needs to run after you've uploaded the image(s). There are quite a few events triggering the media scanner to do its job – but e.g. uploading a file via ...

Tag Buddy lets you store information along with the photo (though as Andrew T. noted, this might be stored on the device and hence won't necessarily go with the photo when the photo is copied to another device). It allows you to tag: Weather Location (though GPS should be in the EXIF and might be) Whom you are with Date (though this is in the EXIF) The ...

You're not limited to using the Gallery app to view your images. I've loaded a file explorer app called ES File Explorer File Manager that allows me to traverse not only the local content of my phone, but, also, any network drives I may have access to. When selecting an image file, you are presented with a list of programs that are registered to open the ...

Not displaying a *.gif image is more-likely related to the application you are trying to view the image with, rather than being device specific. Take a look on the Google PlayStore for an alternative picture/gallery application. I know of one called "GIF Player" which could be of use in the worst-case scenario.

There are a number of photo apps that will let you edit exif data on the android. This one specifically does the data: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.teapps.exiftageditor, some do other pieces of editing, some sort your files for you, etc, etc. Take a look around for one that works well with your particular image work flow.

Personally I would use the Google Photos app, but yes, you can re-download it. Here is a list of downloads for the S3 stock apps for Jellybean: http://www.the-area51.com/2013/01/samsung-galaxy-s3-jellybean-stock-apks.html Download the gallery apk file on your phone, and open it. A promt will open, click install. Once it's finished, you can delete the file ...

The system itself AFAIK doesn't expose a GUI element to do so. However, you have multiple options to trigger the Media Scanner: Reboot the device (not that convenient) unmounting/remounting the SD card (via Settings; better, but still not convenient) using one of the apps/widgets available in the app stores. One that's reportedly working with Kitkat is SD ...

I know this doesn't answer your exact question. You'll save yourself a lot of time and effort going with another picture app such as QuickPic It's fast and customizable, and you can select which folders to include OR exclude :) Do yourself a favor and disable Gallery.

Today I had the same question. I copied a directory full of pictures from an SD card to the Android's phone internal storage, using a downloaded File Manager app, then removed the SD card. In the gallery, the pictures were not found, even after reboot. But after a minute or five, the pictures started to appear in the Gallery. My conclusion is that Gallery ...

It's an Email setting, not a gallery setting. You need to go to Settings → Applications → Manage applications → All → Email Then hit "Clear data" to remove your settings. You will have to reset up your email.
