Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge: How To Fix Disappeared Pictures In Gallery

If you have had issues with pictures or videos disappearing randomly on your Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge or not showing up at all, below we’ll explain how to fix the missing pictures on your smartphone.

Even though the picture or video has been saved on the S7 and S7 Edge memory, it can’t be found in the Gallery when you look for it. It’s a common enough complaint. There could be several reasons why your picture or video doesn’t appear or has disappeared in the picture gallery on your Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. Below, we’ll recommend two solutions to solve the issue when you can’t find a picture in the Gallery for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Restart Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
The quickest and fastest way that you can solve the issue of missing pictures or videos on the Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge is to restart your smartphone. Just as you normally would; there is no fancy reboot option that you need to follow here. Once the S7 or S7 Edge has been reset, then the media scanner of Android starts to search for new images on every reboot, thus allowing for that missing image(s) to show up again in the Gallery app.

Install alternative Gallery app on Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge
If rebooting your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge didn’t work, then try to install QuickPic on your Samsung Galaxy S7 from the Google Play Store. Then open the app and check if it can find the picture in the memory storage of your smartphone. If so, then the error is still located in the Gallery. After installing the app, if you still can’t find the missing picture in the gallery app, then it’s recommended to wipe the cache on the Galaxy S7 Edge: follow this guide here.
