    Installed the new update. Gallery icon on homepage looks different. touch it and says application not installed. if i go into all apps, the gallery button is there. should i delete the new gallery icon?

    also, the new gallery does not have camera video as an option. where did they go? is there a better application out there for the gallery?

    thx

    You not understanding it properly, I think. Spend some time playing with it and yes delete the icon and re-add it. The icon is a standard place holder for the old app which is now gone. You need to add the new app to your home screen and give it a moment to load when you fire it up the first time.

    deleting the old gallery icon is definitely the answer... It solved my problem.

    I just did the update as well. It was taking too long so I just let it start reading photos and left it. After an hour it was fine. New gallery is great. Smooth and more user friendly though I agree that the videos being mixed in is lame. I'm sure theres a way to organize them, searching...

    I've been searching for a way to organize the gallery also with no luck. The only solution I have found is to cut and paste my videos with astro into a video folder I created. If you have any luck please let us know.

    All of my videos are in their own group in the gallery.

    I've not run into this issue, however as an easy fix, mount the device to your computer, then create folders in /sdcard called Pictures and Video, then separate them accordingly.

    how did you accomplish this? we should not have to mount our phone to a PC to organize our pics and videos. it was better before even if it wasn't as fancy looking

    I like the new gallery. All my pictures/videos are in seperate files. The only issue I have, is I can't find the slideshow settings. Wasn't there an option before where we could change the slideshow settings? I can't find one now. :(

    They were already grouped when I opened it up. My folders: Camera, downloads, Pictures, Video…then I have several folders for different pictures I’ve taken or downloaded from apps: SpySnapshot, ewallpapers, 3d wallpapers, backgrounds, and wallpapers.

    I didn’t group anything…wouldn’t even know how to, although, a post I read earlier did give me an idea…I’m going to try re-arranging them via my computer by mounting my phone with the USB cable.

    subfolders and videos

    Does it load faster with more subfolders? I also have a problem with all of my videos; the sound is out of sync and I get the "can't play this file" pop up even though the video continues to play in the background.
