    Photo Gallery Organizer Problem!?! SOLVED

    Hello,

    I am having an issue with my gallery. I wanted to organize it, so that I could find things easier (BAD IDEA!!). I downloaded Fish Bowl Gallery App. Looked great, good reviews, so I went into the app and started to "organize" my photos. Now all of a sudden some of my photos do not show up in the original gallery app, which is upsetting. I figured it was the app, so I went and downloaded a different gallery organizer, F-Stop Media Gallery, same issues, the pictures didn't show up there.

    My issue now is I have about 800 photos of my daughter out in who knows where on my phone, can anyone, tell me how to 1. Find them and/or 2. help me get an app that I can organize my photos with, and yet still have them actually show up in the stock gallery app, because that is where the Picture Frame take the pictures from and the screen saver. Nothing can find anything right now and I am a little paranoid that they are gone.

    Thanks in advance!!
    Kallen

    Hello,

    I am the owner of Seelye Engineering (developer of F-Stop Media Gallery) and I would love to help you with your problem. Can you explain to me in more detail what you did when you "organized" your photos? Have you tried rebooting your phone? It sounds like Fish Bowl Gallery might have done something to your photos (not F-Stop) but I am more than happy to help. Alternatively, you can send an e-mail to our support e-mail address (support@fstopapp.com) so both me and my partner can help you.

    Regards,
    Jason Seelye

    Awesome to see developers in the forum, especially who are willing to help! Thanks for coming to the forum, hope you can help this user... think the rest of us were kind of baffled and have no experience with this app so we didn't respond.

    Thanks, acejavelin! I appreciate the warm welcome.

    Kallen, I have done some research regarding this issue and I think I may have a solution for you. Since I haven't heard what "organization" you did, I checked out the Fish Bowl Gallery app myself. I think you must have put some files in their "locker". This moves your images to another location on your SD card (typically /mnt/sdcard/FishBowlPhoto/.ztmp). They then add a string of numbers at the beginning of the file name and add ".fbi" extension to the end. No gallery app could see them because of the extension change, it was in a hidden folder, and it had a ".nomedia" file in the folder.

    I suggest you copy all of these files on to your computer and rename them accordingly. There are many programs that make renaming easy on a computer.

    Let me know if that worked for you.

    Regards,
    Jason Seelye

    Thank you so much! I am going to email you, I just had to try and figure out what I did. What I did was went into fish bowl, selected pictures, selected move to (this is where I created a new folder and named it) and then from there on kept putting pictures in the folders that I designated.. however this because an issue because now the folders nor the pictures show up anywhere.

    Photo Gallery Organizer Problem!?! SOLVED!!!

    The developers from F-Stop really helped me out with this one (best part of all, it's not even their app that caused my issue) I will now be deleting Fish Bowl and using F-Stop only!!

    Okay here is my solution to this issue I was having:

    FishBowlGalley stored my photos on the SD card and changed the names to ".noMedia" and this was hiding the images from my gallery.

    Some pictures were still not there, so as suggested, I did a search for the *.jpg and I found all of my lost images!!

    I am now, saving all my photos on my SD and backing them all up on my laptop, then backing those up on a Flash Drive ( my photos are very important to me)

    I want to say thanks again to Jason, the developer of F-Stop. You are fantastic and I appreciate everything you have done to help me out!! THANK YOU!!

    You are very welcome , *kallen! I am so glad I could help. There is nothing worse than the feeling you get when you think you lost irreplaceable photos.

    I may be biased but I think you will be very happy with F-Stop Media Gallery We work on this full-time and respond to our users very quickly.

    Sincerely,
