    Look in Files. It'll show your pics in whatever folders you've organized them into.

    I take it you are talking about doing this when connected to computer? I haven't even done that yet. However Astro does this without needing to be connected to computer. It depends on one's preference. No need to be rude about it.

    ??? You don't need to be connected to a computer.1.} You go to the folder(s) where your pics are at, 2.) Punch the settings button, 3.) Select the pics you want to move, 4.) Go to to folder you want to move them to (such as my_pictures) 5.) Select new folder, 6.) Name it.

    I have all my gallery pics organized into folders with categories (ex: my girlfriend, random pics, my music gear, my friends, me, my animals, etc), no connecting to pc or other apps needed.

    Really? How do you get to the files? The only way ier know of if to see the gallery but tapping settings only allows me to select then rotate. No creating files or folders.

    My phone isn't rooted...is yours? Anyway that is why I use the program I suggested..

    My phone isn't rooted.

    Read carefully:

    1) Select "Applications" from your home screen (the blue button with 4 white squares, for newbies)

    2) The applications are in alphabetical order. Scroll down to "my files".

    3) Scroll down to "DCIM", and tap it to open 2 more folders, titled "camera" and "thumbnails" - tap "camera" - this will display all the pics you've taken with your camera, (which is also the folder where you can drag and drop pictures from your computer) or go to whatever folder you put your pictures in NOT taken with the camera.

    With me so far?

    4) Once you've opened whatever folder you have pictures you'd like to organize into seperate folders, hit the softkey "settings" button (bottom left) and select "more."

    5) Now you have a menu with the option "move." Tap the "move" option, and little checkmarks will appear beside thumbnails of all your pics. Think of a folder you want to create, and name it (ex: My Pets), and check off all the appropriate pictures.

    6) Once you've checked the pics you want to move, tap the "move" button, and find the folder "My Pets" or whatever folder you want, and hit the pop up button "move here" - and viola: you have a specific folder in your Gallery with all your pics of "My Pets", with the title, "My Pets."

    Now you're one tap away from all those memorable "Pet" moments.

    No uneccesary downloaded apps using of sd/disc space!

    1. Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed reply. It is appreciated.
    2. I simply made the mistake of thinking you were saying to look for files and do the editing while in the gallery. Didn't put 2 & 2 together that it was the My Files app you were talking about. Pilot error on my part.
    3. It really isn't necessary to be condescending. If you're here to help then do so. But people will make mistakes & not quite get it - especially if new to Android our their phone.
    4. I'm glad there is a way to get to those files without a third part app. I also still like the Astro File manager interface.

    I agree. Parts of my post were condescending and rude. I'll edit them out to make it a more constructive reply.

    My apologies to the OP and anyone else offended.

    I do think the Brett Favre references were funny, if in poor taste.

    My apologies.

    Also, if you play around with the instructions I posted, there are slightly more efficient ways to organize pics, but I think you'll figure that out as I did.

    I actually liked the Brett references.


    Thank you.
