    Question How do I get the photo view to stretch full screen again?

    Help! when I usually view photos on my droid x, if I turn the phone to the horizontal position the photo will stretch to full the entire screen. But today I did something to it that made it smaller and now there are black bars on either side I can't for the life of me figure out what I did!! I've tried every setting I can think of!

    Anyone know the secret??

    try this:

    settings>applications>manage applications>all>gallery
    then clear cache and clear data

    see if that resets it for you.

    But wouldn't that delete all my photos?

    No formatting your sd card would.

    Any other takers? It was never this way before...now inside the black bars on the side there's an HDMI icon in the upper left, a play icon in the lower left, and an "i" (info) icon in the lower right, all inside the left and right black bars.

    Before on its previous setting, the photo would just stretch to fill up the entire screen and those icons wouldn't be there. I was holding my phone and didn't realize it was on and viewing the gallery yesterday and I must have pressed something without knowing it, but I have no idea what I did!!

    silly question.. but it's worth asking anyway...

    have you opened a photo and double tapped on the photo?
