You can find the source for this app in the Gallery2 package in AOSP. All the code for the photo editor is in src/com/android/gallery3d/filtershow. The saving is handled by tools/ImageSave.java, which has this comment explaining the behaviour (which I've formatted):- In order to support the new edit-save behavior such that user won't see the edited image ...

It doesn't matter where you put them. A convenient place usually is the (internal or external) SD card, where you simply could create a Photos folder, and extract your photos to. The gallery app simply checks the devices media database, it doesn't check the directories directly. This database gets fed by the so-called Media Scanner, which gets triggered by ...

Not a full answer (came here looking for an answer myself), but here are a couple of partial solutions I figured out so far, perhaps someone else can improve upon these. First of all, temporary files for the last few photosphere sessions can be found under /sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.gallery3d/files/panorama_sessions/. You can extract these out ...

Many media scanner apps do not work as expected on KitKat. After trying couple of such apps i found that the media scan function in FX file explorer app works 100% every time you use it. It successfully updates your gallery with the changes. Get FX file explorer from here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nextapp.fx Open this app, go to 'Main ...

No, you won't be able to get it back without a backup unless you know someone with the same phone who can back it up & provide you with a copy. You also won't be able to update your system OTA in the future either, as updates check to make sure that all the apps that should be there are present. If they're not, they won't install.

Anyways, ...

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 ...
