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) ...

You will not lose any of your photos, if CLEAR DATA operation is performed, it is completely safe to do so. This just means that your preferences have been reset and the cache has been cleared.1 Cache is generated only for providing fast access to gallery files. When you restart your gallery after this operation, it'll take some time to load and it will ...

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 ...

The given answer is correct, I just want to clarify: By pressing Clear data on any app, you're clearing application's data, stored in /data/data/[package.name]. It doesn't contain any images of yours, nor you can access it unless you root your device. Cache also belongs to data, and it's inside /data/data/[package.name]/cache. Your images, on the other ...

In the comments you said: I have found many previously sent images in WhatsApp now which confirms that images has not been deleted. But the matter is that the images are not shown in the gallery. What should I do to recover image? So you are telling me that the images are still on your phone, but not deleted? If that is the case it may be cause of a ...

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!

It was most likely an add video from an app. I find weird videos and pictures on my phone all the time and then later find out they go to an app. If you delete it, you will be fine. If it was important (probably not) the google store will re-download it. I don't think you have any reason to get worried about a virus. As a side note, Sarah Markel appeared in ...

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 ...

Works also in Total Commander, an otherwise very clever and powerful two pan file manager: long-tab the icon of the first file, in the menu choose SELECT or DESELECT, glide till the other end of the range, tap the last desired icon, and voila!

I found I could multi select pics by touching the first one, holding my finger on the screen, and then dragging across the screen to the last one. They all turn to selected as I pass over them. A bit like selecting text with a mouse on a PC!

Download and open Xplore File Manager. (This can be done with any file manager, but Xplore is easy to use.) Navigate to the folder to which you want to move the pictures. Swipe left, and you will see a list of folders on your right. Select the images you want to move by tapping the ticks on their sides. Long-press on one of the files, and select Move from ...

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.
