    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.

    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?

    are you looking at your pictures through the "picture slide" or through the gallery?

    because that makes a difference. I tried looking at my pics first through the slide and the images were really small while through the gallery and everything was nice and large.

    Yes -- if I double tap a photo, it does this ridiculously close zoom in!! Then if I double tap again, it just goes back to the regular size but with the 2 bars on the sides, not stretched to full screen :( And if I zoom in, then zoom out just until it's stretched to full screen where it used to be, it won't stay that way...if I hit "back" it just goes back to the black bars on the sides and if I try to scroll left or right to the next photo it just moves around in the photo since I'm technically zoomed in.

    Gallery...it was always working fine on full screen until I did something yesterday to it! I had a photo open (from gallery) and I had to grab something with that hand so I didn't close it or put it on standby, I just grabbed the other item. And while I did that, I must have pressed something or changed some settings because when I looked back, the "info" screen was on which has all of the image information and when I hit "back" that's when I noticed that the view was different :(

    Hey what if I restore all of my phone's settings back to factory? Think it'll help?? The question is...will that delete any of my apps that are currently installed or any of my photos/videos or the items in my calendar?

    If the pictures you already took are small, then that's how they will stay.

    Are you rooted? Do you remember what you done before it started acting up? Try opening up your camera and then changing your mp to either 5 or 8.

    not sure what "rooted" means? I know I've been on the 8mp setting since before this thing started minimizing my photo view sizes with the black bars on the sides, and it always stretched to full screen view.

    Funny thing is - now if the camera is on that 8mp setting, even the viewfinder in the camera itself when you go to take a photo has the black bars on the sides! It never used to do that! Now, the only way to get the black bars to go away is to use the "wide screen" camera setting, which I'd never done before :( Did I somehow change the overall size of my entire phone screen??

    When this all changed, I didn't realize my phone wasn't on standy so I was viewing a photo and holding the phone, pressing buttons I didn't know I was even pressing and when I went to look, the screen had changed from full screen to this smaller view with the black bars :/

    The strange thing too is that one of the photos (the old ones I took months ago) IS stretching to full screen and when I click "info" it was taken at 6mp...which is strange because 6mp isn't even an option on my phone right now!!! (and I know I took that photo with this phone, it was back in February). AARRRGH my phone is trying to drive me insane!!!!!!!!!!!

    This may sound weird, but how are you holding the phone when you are looking at your pix? The reason I ask is this..when holding in Portrait, the pics wont be full screen since the camera is set to take pics by default in Landscape. If you hold the phone in Landscape position and then view the pix, they should show in full screen mode...
