    Why is it when I take a picture, that my picture shows up in three different places. Is there a better program than the default gallery.

    I'm having the same problem. Any picture I take results in a duplicate set of folders.
    Been through the settings a few times looking for a fix, but haven't found one yet. I'm new to the Droid so that most likely is why...

    Are you saying it creates multiple copies of the photo? I have never heard of that. I know the gallery has several groupings it uses, such as camera pictures, all pictures, etc. Photos can appear in several groupings. There are other apps available in the market for viewing photos.

    I have looked in the marketplace, which resulted in zero findings. There is on called Multi touch, but got bad reviews.

    easy photo viewer
    photo gallery
    photo burst pro

    Thank you so much, I did purchase multi touch gallery pro and it's perfect for me. Thank you once again.

    You are welcome. That does look like a nice program. I am gonna wait and see if I like the new gallery better when 2.1 comes out. I am OK with the current one for now.

    Could always install the 2.1 gallery apk file now and see how you like it :) It's pretty sweet.

    It is on my phone. Two identical thumbnail folders. One says 'Camera pictures(2) the identical one next to it says 'Camera media(2)

    I purchased the 'multi touch gallery pro' app and it has the exact same appearance and identical folders...

    The gallery shows a quick reference for different types of media.

    Not duplicate files, just different automatic search parameters.

    Ok, they are not copies. This is true because if I delete one pic, it will be removed from the other groups.

    Now, how or where can we get a 'gallery' that shows only one pic and no groups? It's a pita to navigate and looks like hell...

    I actually find it quite handy.

    If you're looking for a pic taken with the droid camera, you click on the camera pictures icon.

    If it is a downloaded pic you click on the download icon. For videos, click onall videos.

    When you end up with a bunch of different pics and media, it makes it pretty easy to find stuff.

    It's cluttered and not intuitive. The title and the icon for Gallery implies still images, not videos. Maybe there should be a separate video gallery or change the name/icon. Anyway, I think it's cluttered having a separate sub-galleries for pictures and videos taken with the droid. I'd like one gallery for all pictures, then within that gallery give me the option to sort or filter (with a filter option being "pictures taken with this device").

    I personally think it's pretty intuitive (relative to the rest of the droid) and basically fool proof for finding images / videos (cluttered as it may be). The setup you're talking about is very similar to how contacts are managed on the droid with groups. I personally would prefer what you're talking about as well...but if you look at the number of people asking why some or all of their contacts are missing, you'll see that this method isn't particularly intuitive either.

    I know what you're saying though.

    edit: I can only imagine the difficulty that the android developers had coming up with a good compromise between the ability to customize the OS and ease of use.

    Man, I don't know, I would much rather have a photo gallery app that points and looks at just the single camera image or just the video image. If they are grouped separately, camera vs video, thats cool too. But to show me thumbnails grouped with my original pics is of no use at all.
    I could understand it maybe if I was looking in a 'master' file of some sort where the Droid needs all to be together for app purposes. But please just give me a photo gallery with no duplicate pics or folders. :icon_ banana:

    I am using Vignette as my photo app on my Droid X

    I just transfered photos to my computer.

    There are multiple copies in different sizes of the pictures I took. any ideas why that happened?

    In the Vignette settings you probably have it set to automatically save the original image in addition to the version that Vignette creates. Basicallly, Vignette takes a regular camera image (original) and applies filters and effects to that file and saves it as a different file. If you ever take a pic using Vignette, but you're not applying any effects to it, just keep the original. Vignette files can be substantially larger in file size than the original if you use thebest quality and size settings (which I always do).

    Your phone will also include thumbnails and any editing including copies saved from sending in picture messages.
    Every time I go to upload I have well over 100 I have to uncheck
