I want to categorize/reorganize the photos in my gallery. I feel like I've been all over the place in ASTRO, looking them, but I can't seem to find them. I see my downloads, and some other photo folders I've moved stuff to while plugged in to my computer, but not the photos I've taken with the camera.

I've checked /mnt/sdcard/dcim, but all it has are three directories: Camera (empty), Icons (empty) and .thumbnails (full of cryptic cache files). Same story at /sdcard/dcim (I think those two are symlinked).

Where are my photos?

If it makes a difference, I'm on an HTC Incredible.


In my camera settings, it is set to save photos to the phone's memory, not my sd card.

Aha, found them!


Then most of them are in the 100MEDIA sub directory.


Your photos should be in the DCIM folder. I have an HTC EVo and all photos from my camera are in /sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA/. I doubt this would help but maybe you should try another file manager.

Try taking a photo and then go to your DCIM directory to see if any new folders or images are there.

It looks like you solved your issue! Just so others have a method to help themselves if they get stuck i'm adding this to my answer:

If you can view any photos in HTC photo app you can long press on the photo and select the Details option. This should provide you with a File path

  • No luck. Same as /mnt/sdcard/dcim. I think the two are symlinked. Commented May 16, 2011 at 23:22
  • Yeah i figured as much but I thought it was worth a shot. Question: when you take a photo can you see it when you select the photo button next to the shutter button?

  • See the bottom part of my revised answer - that might help.
