    picture help

    Hello all. Hoping someone can help me here. My wife and I are new converts from the BB Storm to the Motorola Android (slide out keyboard version not Eris). We just got them about a week ago. My wife took a few pictures and we can't find them on her phone. We checked Picasa and they aren't there either. Where did these pics go? How do I find them? As I am not used to this phone yet I need some really specific instructions on this. Thanks!!

    @kyfry85 - You have to explain better... because I have no idea what you are talking about... and I am not a newbie.

    @bjmoore26 You don't mention it... so I have to ask... Did you try using the Gallery Application? The photos (unless they were deleted) should be in the "Camera Pictures" set when you open Gallery.

    yes I checked the gallery app and nothing was there. she changed a location setting under her camera settings that is now allowing the pics to save to the sd card but i still cannot find the ones she took before then not even on picasa

    The stock camera app by default saves to the SDCard (and as far as I know there is no way to change it)... so what app are you using to take the pictures?

    By Default the pictures are stored in /sdcard/DCIM/camera, and that is where the pictures should be stored. If you are using another application, you would have to check with its defaults.

    Picasa has nothing to do with the stock camera app, so unless you excitedly uploaded photos to Picasa, it is not surprising that you did not find them there.

    You can download an app like Astro which will allow you to browse the filesystem on the phone and help you locate the files.

    The gallery is supposed to load any images on your SD card that aren't hidden.... regardless what folder they are in... at least it does on mine

    That is why I said "if they weren't deleted" and asked what app was used to take the pictures (in case it was one that puts them in a hidden folder). You are correct, if they are on the phone the Gallery should find them where ever they are. (so long as they are not hidden)

    We both use stock camera. She took like 10 pics the first night she had the phone. We haven't used any other camera apps. We can't find her pics anywhere.
