    Try hooking up your phone to a computer and checking all your folders. It's possible that the phone started putting photos in a different directory (stray electron, bad app, etc) and the stock gallery doesn't recognize it for some reason. I did a battery pull on mine a few weeks ago and it started saving the photos in a dcim directory on the sim card instead of the internal memory (or maybe vice versa). Scared me for a minute because I had several gig of photos for my job stored.

    Today for the first time I was taking pictures and they were not showing up in the gallery, but we're showing up in Astro file manager?

    To set the new gallery as default, go into settings -> applications and find the gallery app. Open it and scroll down to the launch by default section. Press the clear defaults button. Now open a file explorer like astro and use it to open a photo. When you do it should prompt you to choose which app you want to open it with. Tap the save as default box below and select your new gallery.

    And as far as the galleries "storing photos", neither will store them, they just find the photos on the phone so you can view them.
