    I finally got the 2.1 OS and I love the new gallery UI!!

    I found about 30 pictures on my gallery and for the life of me, I don't know how they got there (I took them with a digital camera and I know I didn't import them to my Droid)... and to make things weirder, when I go to Astro to delete them, they're no where to be found!

    I checked the Location under the Gallery info of the pix and it says, "Unknown Location." Does anyone know where these pix might be saved? I mounted my SD card on my computer and did a search. No luck...

    Help!

    I've heard that the new gallery syncs to your Picasa gallery unless you tell it not to. Could that be it? Try a search for Picasa (above) and check out the threads for only the last few days - there's a way to reset the sync, but I'm sorry I don't remember how.

    OK, so where's the sync setting? I obviously don't have Picasa, but someone else is bound to ask....

    No setting... It did it automatically. I forgot I even had those pix saved to Picasa, so when I updated my OS to 2.1, the new gallery automatically synced it.

    Actually there is (just in case you want to know for future reference)... To turn off that sync you can uncheck the Picasa web album account from Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync > Gmail account.
