  1. Mark Vorndran-avatar

    Overall, its a pretty good app. Its cool that you can create albulms and stories. I do have one small issue though. When I went to rename a story, all I wanted to do was capitalize a word that I forgot to capatalize in the first place, but it wouldnt let me capitalize the word because it didnt reconize that as a change. Please fix this and have a good day.

    apk I spend time collecting videos/gifs which used to be viewable ,but now most of the time ,they show as a grey field with a triangle surrounding an exclamation point, basically telling me I WASTED MY TIME ! USELESS APP! It sticks,stalls,balks,and won't allow me to change file names,among other glitches ,such as showing blank spaces where files should be ,and sometimes when I attempt to look at "details" ,it clicks over to "use as contact photo " mode ! I sure wish they'd FIX THIS THING !

  3. Pamela West-avatar

    pc I used this gallery, and I am finding that it is limiting the amount of photos that I can store on my phone. My storage should not be limited in this manner. Also the amount of mb/megabytes shown for this album is NOT accurate. When I delete photos, I still cannot get enough space in this gallery.

  4. Happy Nkotsi-avatar

    onedrive Very awesome, it's easy to use and gives me the platform to edit my photos the way i want and choose. There are many options to name and categorize. You can hide and unhide, and also edit your phone's in various colors, such as in black, white, blue, brown and any color you want and like. You can name in groups, or in pairs and in single. Virtually the Samsung Galaxy is versatile, and enjoy using it. Thank you for bringing it 😗👌

  5. Glenis Chapman-avatar

    cloud I have a Samsung A8. The Gallery (version stopped working soon after the last Samsung update. It just won't open. I emailed the support team but was told (via no-reply email) to use the in-App contact. Obviously I can't because I can't open the App! Prior to this, I would have given the app 5 stars as its awesome when it works.

  6. Adam Wazza-avatar

    tv Love it, life long Samsung user and supporter. Phones , apps and appliances by Samsung are always amazing , efficient and are basically the best. They always have a friendly, tidy very smart user interface. This apps no different its excellent. Id recommend Samsung users stick with Samsung apps that are pre loaded, as they are always a million times better than third party apps and are all optimised for Samsung phones. Been down with galaxy from day 1 and i adore my S10 . Samsung thank you!

  7. Rufaida Rahman-avatar

    web It's a great app, but suddenly certain things aren't working. When I try to set an aspect ratio, it always stays on the first option where it doesn't keep the ratio. Also, horizontal and vertical stretch switched for some reason? (When I'm on horizontal, it's stretching vertically, and vice versa). Also, any changes I make related to cropping aren't saving - it goes back to the original even after I press save. Samsung, please resolve these issues. It's a hassle to download other editing apps.

  8. Taranjeet Singh-avatar

    app ios App is very very good , but samsung need to add a function. Function is: Gallery lock and fingerprint in gallery which is better. I hope next time samsung gallery update will comes with gallery lock and fingerprint option. I like Samsung Phones. I m use many phones of samsung like: G350E,J5,J7,J7 PRIME, J7 PRO, J4, A30.

  9. Terry Flint-avatar

    mac I love this app!!! The pictures are so bright, clear and wonderful!!!! Every single time! And I love all the things that are available to help make each and every picture your very own! Thank you so much for making it all available and possible!!! Theresa Flint

  10. Angela M-avatar

    auf huawei I like this app, but since the new update you're not able to search through your pictures by date. Anymore. It will pop up the month and date, but then it doesn't allow the pictures to be viewed. It just says no images. When there are images to be seen. I hope this issue get fixed soon.

  11. Nettie-avatar

    Photo Editor which is part of this app has become invasively obnoxious since upgrade to android 10. When used, a notification appears on screen, "Photo Editor Processing" and it STAYS there, and the only way to get rid of it is by Force Stopping the app!! Cannot turn off notifications in the app, it is greyed out. PLEASE FIX THIS or I will uninstall Samsung gallery with its Photo editor and find something else!

  12. Tom Newman-avatar

    Updated to latest version Phone will no longer upload or share photos in messages. Galaxy S10 **EDIT** Raised from 1 star to 3. Phone did a system update and everything works as it should. Only 3 stars for the inconvenience of not being able to use the gallery as intended for 3 days. Pretty lame I had to wait for a system update.

  13. toyshopracing351-avatar



    Why did you screw with this app. Who messed it up. It was fine , now all my pictures dates are wrong things on the same that couldn't possibly happen on the same day. And missing pictures is the worst. Some that can't be replaced. So disappointed in this app. Leave well enough alone. Wow I would give no stars but it won't let me. Do not update if you have not. And who keeps auto updating when have this trun off on my s10 plus. Very angry 😠 .

  14. pew-avatar

    Worst app ever, I cannot edit my edit. I can't see the text I wrote anymore because I can't edit it. And I really want to see the text that's behind the picture. Now there's like 6 words behind the picture left side and right side. Like this: "n, this is. Like what"and it's and it cuts off. I can't re see what I wrote. my memory isn't that great once I write something I tend to forget that's why I write it Can U please fix that? Or change that? limit words had delete lots. Limit again.+

  15. Shpresa Doci-avatar

    It's cool and very nice when you want to edit your pictures, it has lots of options, but when it comes to editing videos there is no other option but just trimming them. It would be very good if tou added some options like adding text to videos, some filters and background music at least. So I wouldn't have to install another app from Galaxy store just to edit videos. If you added the basics of editing videos, it would be great.

  16. Gabriel Rosas-avatar

    Absolutely disappointing. First step downhill was when they added arbitrary grouping of your folders that you can't change. Second, you can't select what video player you'd like to use by default, it ignores your settings. That was there from the start at least. Now they took away the only thing that ever made this worth using: the intuitive and simple image editing tools. No more color correction, brightness adjustment, saturation adjustment, etc. Ridiculous. Uninstalling/disabling.




    Honestly, I like this app but recently, i just discovered that some of the pictures in my gallery have problems. The pictures has two shades of colours which disrupts the pictures. Please help me fix this problem because i don't want to lose my precious pictures. Thank you.

  18. Jack Ledger-avatar

    Sadly the latest upgrade pushes this up right the way back down the ladder up until then it used to be at the very top and it was an unbelievably effective application which was very easy to use and now they have messed it up completely. The ability to create an a photographic story and attach music to it etc seems to have been lost?? I am now so disappointed I am going to migrate to another application.

  19. Jake M-avatar

    I have 1000s of family photos. When looking through them, I often accidentally scroll up, it closes gallery and I lose my place. I wanted to transfer my favorites to my pc. I couldn't really find a way, so I tried moving them to a secure folder to separate them, and that didn't help at all. So I moved them back and it unfavorited my all my pics. Just great.

  20. Maicey T.-avatar

    I've never had any real problems with this app until recently. I don't know what changed, but suddenly the app won't load my pictures. It only shows the thumbnail, and when I click on the image it gives me a grey screen with an exclamation point in the middle. I tried to upload the pictures to my computer to see if it was something wrong with the phone, but it told me I couldn't upload empty images. I can't find any real answers and there's no new update or anything to fix it. I'm getting angry.

  21. Dia Boyos-avatar

    Every time you try to rename something this app crashes. It organizes things randomly so sometimes the most recent item is at the bottom of the list or even the middle. Items stored on the SD card won't show up in the gallery unless it's a photo or video taken using the phone. The Dev contact email listed here to ask for help is a "send only" address and will return an error when you ask for help. Zero support.

  22. Susan Tanner-avatar

    A previous update changed the way pictues are displayed. Used to show pictures very small and I could make them large and could zoom in on them. Now they show 1 at a time, larger and I can't zoom in on them. I want the 1st way they were displayed back, please.

  23. Kathleen Fahey-avatar

    Like that I can customize albums to keep track of my photos, screen shots & downloads. What I don't like is saving the photos always defaults to phone. I have to choose sd card. So if I'm in a hurry or not 100% paying attention the new album auto saves to phone & I can't figure out how to change it with out creating another new album with a slightly different name, moving all the photos over, renaming the 2nd new album, and then deleting the 1st new album. There's 1 more wish but, no room.

  24. gary wilbanks-avatar

    Old version 100% better. No reason to get rid of side bar listing of albums, which is quicker to review than scrolling through large icons 2 at a time. Plus, I can no longer see any of the pi tires in the album until I open, only to realize I put the picture I want in a different album.. Also can't get rid of "stories" I did not create and do not want (they are mostly incorrectly labeled anyway).

  25. Dmitriy Solovyov-avatar

    Face tagging does not work anymore. I don't know if it is because I switched to onedrive as per Samsung suggestion to back it up or...whatever. Samsung disappointing sales are well reflect in the total mess one ui is becoming. Backup to onedrive, sync to their own cloud, than end up with many functions not working. It seems that Google or OnePlus become the only viable offering due to pure software and services by Google that do work. Samsung is losing it.

  26. Fritz Louderback-avatar

    Gallery presents a very useful way to build files of photos into a catalogue of photo files I can name. It has quick access to delete, save, edit, and send options. It is the only tool I require on my phone to handle both my business and personal collection of thousands of photos and it permits me to save them on my encrypted 850MB storage card.

  27. Len Lyttle-avatar

    Before the upgrade I had photos disappear out of the files. Haven't been able to find them. Now I have the upgrade supposed to fix problems I'm going to put some more photos and hopefully they'll stay. I'll be back to update layout of the program is nice only problem I had with the loss of some photos I don't think anybody should be able to delete your photos just because you're using their program your photos are your property.

  28. skye bo-avatar

    So confusing to use. It's just not well integrated with the rest of my phone. I wish downloads and media from outside my camera roll were uploaded. I wish I could see collections. Albums are hard to organize and access. Since I got my s9, I've been searching for a replacement because I just can't use this at all to reliably manage my images and videos.

  29. Serious Lee-avatar

    The gallery app is ok. Though I do not know where to go to complain about Samsung's latest update. My autocorrect f@($ing sucks now. It is so terrible. So so so terrible that I am going on other Samsung apps to complain. I hate it and I did not ask for AR Zone, apparently it has something to do with making pictures emojis?? I don't want it. Why can I not uninstall it? I don't want it.

    Ever since I got my first Samsung Galaxy phone (the S3), back in 2012, I've consistently used Samsung Gallery for all my media needs. Eventually upgrading to the S5, then jumping to the S8, and now just very recently to the S10, the options to use from the Gallery itself incredible, and I love the addition of auto-creating stories from media. It's very doubtful I'll use any other Gallery app as this one suits my needs very well indeed. Continue the great work. Stefan

  31. Tim Podpora-avatar

    Was great but out of nowhere, yesterday evening it started crashing when I looked at picture details. Found out there was an update so I updated and it still crashed EVERY time I back out from looking at picture details. Apparently it is a VERY common thing as of yesterday. I reviewed this on Samsung's app page and saw at least 30 other people posting about the crashes. Time to use quick pic I guess.

  32. Prashant Dalal-avatar

    I m using S/G last four years, still no issue. All functions are working. Battery is working 24 hours. Phone charging is very fast, I aslo suggest few people to buy this. Try to reduce phone size. Height and width. Screen shots facility not available. After on line payment, I can't caught screenshots of the receipt. Inbox for email not found if I go to inbox for find and any email I not found every time. Pls check and solve. Main point try to compaire price also.

  33. Robert Afflick-avatar

    Before the latest update I could choose my text style and font color in the photo editor. Now all fonts are in black bold italics with white borders and it will not let me alter the font style or color. Same thing happened on my Samsung Tab 10. This is a retrograde step... lame, lame, lame! I would give it a zero star if I could.

  34. rose stevenson-avatar

    when my phone updated this app constantly crashes. Does not save my photos to my SD card also you cannot rename anyting it does not accept it. And if I download a photo and try to save it to my camera when I restart my phone the download picture is deleted. I am very disappointed with this new update please fix it. Thank you

  35. David Jackson-avatar

    Unusually for a native app, it is simple, not unnecessarly flashy, and generally works well. And unlike lots of apps it doesn't try to do things that you don't want. I've not felt any need to look for anything else.

    I like how Samsung Gallery has incorporated new editing features into the main app, such as cropping, image filters and text. Sharing and uploading images / videos has never been easier, the ability to share via bluetooth is the best way to share videos and other large files to people close by without any loss of quality.

  37. Andrea Moussa-avatar

    Purchased the new s20 ultra and to my disappointment gallery has messed up all my photos and videos from previous years into one month. When I need to look for a photo from a certain date its hard because they're all messed up and not in chronological order. I've never had a problem with Android gallery until I purchased this new phone. Fix ASAP please!!!!

  38. fraser irvine-avatar

    Face tagging is terrible. Constantly identifies wrong people with same name multiple times. No way to reset tagging on galaxy S9. Unfortunately cannot delete app or I would. Groups people in wrong group, then after sorting things, it then renamed them. Very very poor app.

  39. Rob Schipper-avatar

    Because Samsung seems to be making Microsoft a requirement for using their gallery i am reducing my rating. I don't like when my phone (read Samsung) is telling me which app I have to use. Samsung already has too many mandatory app. That is the reason why I will not buy a Samsung phone again.

    In the beginning a tipical gallery app, had minimal problems with it until some of my old photos started changing dates to more recent dates, at first i thought it was my fault but the more i looked into it i understood it wasn't. It happened 2 times by now and it happened again today making it 3 times, hundreds of my photos going back to 2017 are now dated as taken a few days a ago and one picture is dated in 2023. Disappointed to say the least.

  42. Chuck Seefeldt-avatar

    This app used to be OK now it kind of sucks. It keeps closing all of a sudden for no reason and also after editing a photo. I mean for what it does it is good but for what I don't need it to do? This is annoying. I have a 116GB SD card at 49.19GB maybe there is a limit for how many photos this app can manage?

  43. Jahidul Islam-avatar

    Some more issues need to be updated. The biggest problem is when the wrong duplicate image shows. Cannot identify text document. Images cannot be deleted in a single way after showing duplicate images. Further upgrades from Artificial Intelligence are needed. So that Google can do face detection correctly without making mistakes like in photos.

    I really don't like the newest update for this because before there would be a way to move pictures into the Camara card but now nothing. Please fox this problem because it made it so easy before. Now I have to use Photos to do this and it takes super long time not going to do that.

    This would be a five star review but there doesn't seem to be anyway to save images/videos to a SD card. I have very limited space on my actual phone which means I have to delete images constantly. I blog and this is inconvenient. I'd actual like to keep pictures of friends, family, and my pets on my phone but can't the way it's set up now. Yes cloud storage is available and I use it but internet service or decent data connections are not always available plus some apps only use your gallery

  46. Todd Scully-avatar

    A typical app that's been created to be able to do many many things like not just crop or brightness or create captioned photos to your liking! I use it at least once a day due to my ownership of Samsung J3 property! It does do alot for free app included with cell phone! I find this app to be very easy to use plus I have found other things with the app that helps me get better results on photos. I am going to give this app a rating of 4/5 score 💯👍👌👏

  47. linda sanchez-avatar

    It's free...easy and reliable. Just what most of us are looking for . It's one of my constant apps on all my phones. A go to app every day. One that you dont have to be TECHY to use but can appreciate if you are. As of yet, I can't complain. Holds all our memories....!!! AND you can CREATE with it too !

  48. Taksh Jindal-avatar

    I don't understand what is happening with me ? I am using J7 duo . I had 550+ videos on my device now the whole is like hide anywhere. These are not in gallery not in file manager & in etc place. Where the hell they have gone . My device is already running out of storage . I thought to make some space by deleting them but I didn't find them . I just want to know did I disturb any option in settings or what happened ? Hope you clear my issue.....

    I really love this app so much that I'll not be able to find anything else to replace it, but one thing I don't like now is when I'm looking at my Pictures or Deleting my Pictures for a few minutes before the app randomly closes for no reason at all when I'm just looking at my Pictures or just Deleting my Pictures to make room for storage on my phone.

    Love this app gave it 5 stars that's saying something I've never gave 5 before its let's me mage great pictures I found out that delayed pictures aren't gone till you empty trash. Great to know if delayed by accident best photo app I love it its one to try its impressive check it out you won't be disappointed

  51. Janina Rudman-avatar

    I would've given 5 but there's an issue with not being able to rotate my pictures from where im viewing it in my album folders and then when im looking through my pictures i will find one which i would like to load as my whatsapp profile and i cant do that from Gallarey- no option for that. I have to go and do it manually from whatsapp. Older samsung phones was quite easier.

    Great photos app! Works well it can take some getting used to where all of your stuff is if you have a lot of pictures but it can be organized if needed and probably resized which I should do if thats a feature. would love the option to quickly rotate a picture without having to go into edit mode pictures that aren't oriented correctly when you rake them don't happen often but often enough for this feature to be in this app

  53. Stevan Rodic-avatar

    Please turn off or at least give us option to turn off option for video preview play at the moment when clicking on the video,and than another click for real play option. It is really annoying and there is absolutely no point of that. And other thing i noticed that slow-mo videos from other devices are played as regular video. Please code the gallery to recognize slow-mo video and to play it like the ones recorded on the phone. Thank you.

    Latest update from Samsung has corrupted internal & external storage phone continuously fills itself with files labeled as other and those files cannot be managed with the file manager provided by Samsung so your just (SOL) this is hard block installed two updates ago i used the ASUS file manager previously to handle photos and other files especially the random ones just eating space in my (Note9) 128GB should be enough space for android updates and files right? Fix it now! 4-3-20

    I used to love this. But I found out that when I use the wallpapers and themes, I cant get my phone back to normal. The only way i can get rid of it is to put another wallpaper theme on it. And i cant find anyone to speak to about this.

    If i could give a zero i would. Spent time collecting memories for google to block me out of my own app. It wont open at all. Restarting phone and force stop wont work bc guess what same error message. So upset to loose contact with all my photos. Pissed off actually.

  57. Ramona Morariu-avatar

    No no no! It was a perfectly good app until last night, after the most recent update. Now the camera app crashes or it takes ages to launch it, pictures I take aren't saved correctly or aren't saved at all, and everything aroung camera and gallery functionality is just messed up!

    I have a new Galaxy A50s. When I call up a photo and click the pencil I get the following message: "to use this feature, you need to allow permissions in settings." There is the word "settings" in blue next to the message but clicking on it doesn't do anything. I've gone into permissions and given gallery everything there is to give including phone (?) Still can't access the photo editor. Any ideas?

    I'm really concerned as I might need a new phone soon and I have an app called HUJI cam and I have loads of my photos on that platform. I have to save a photo from HUJI to get it on to my device eg. Gallery. Now, I have recently backed up all of my photos to Google Photos and deleted them from my normal gallery. I wanted a photo from HUJI so I saved it, then I went onto my normal gallery and it didn't save. I tried saving other photos and they didn't save either. None of them do. I need help.

  60. Khaled Nabil-avatar

    TLDR; such a buggy app! The gallery used to be great, now it is very problematic, keeps lagging or not showing any content, some photos on Samsung cloud just don't load propey. Also, I am not able to search by people anymore with the search itself crashing.

    I usually am totally happy with the app, but today I moved a few pictures from my camera album to another and left a few in it, then just now went back into the app only to find out my camera album is totally gone. I am so pissed off. Fix this glitch please. And the app likes to corupt pictures and make them so u can't see then once u click on then cuz they go to a solid color over all or half of the picture this is ridiculous, this should never ever happen.

  62. Amurii-avatar

    This app is great, however, I have found myself upon a problem after I recently updated it where the app seems to crash and close for everytime I attempt to edit the name of a photo/video. I am unaware as to the reason why this happens, but it would be highly appreciated if this were to be fixed.

    I'm using Samsung galaxy a20 and whenever I open or close the gallery app my phone's screen goes black.... So I'll have to lock and unlock the phone everytime!.... This is happening since the one ui 2.0 update ..... I need a solution for this Samsung!

  64. Yeezy Dragon-avatar

    Why can't I edit my photos now?? I have a Samsung s9 and when I click on the pencil to edit, it tells me to allow permissions in settings. There is no settings to be found to allow permissions!! Now I can't edit any of my pictures by pressing the pencil icon! Someone please fix this or let me know how to fix it!!!

  65. Wade Lewis-avatar

    Pretty basic, nothing really wrong with it. My only suggestion would be, I'd like to see motion photos automatically move when scrolling through the pictures instead of having to hit the "play motion photo" button all the time.

  66. Chalista Blum-avatar

    Good app need more ability to make gallery more organized & able to be put on sd card instead of being on internal save drive. I'm tired of have to look up all my photo s on a internet server storage space. Aka google photo & the old Google drive I just want to edit n print my photos like I used to be able to. Why would they sell 16GB SD card if you cant even use it? Its stupid!

  67. Sophie Isaac-avatar

    It's one thing having a preloaded / FORCED app on a unit a consumer purchases from a Brand. However its something entirely different & enough to put the consumer off further purchases from a specific Brand when a PRELOADED/FORCED app doesn't offer an option to DISABLE it. Unfortunately this is one of those latter Apps. Please consider YOUR consumers. Doesn't matter what their understanding is. The ability to use what's preferred can make OR break your Longevity in this market.

  68. Maria Ahmed-avatar

    I had my Gallery organised my way and with your updates, you messed my organization. I am very upset. I want my Gallery the way it was before the last update. Before changing personalised things on people's mobile, you should ask customers if they want the change and inform which changes you wish to do. I am very much upset and unpleased with what you did with my Gallery in the last update. I hope you can put it the way it was before, because this is messing my life.

  69. Justin Birch-avatar

    Doesn't work at all, constantly getting crash messages when I'm not even using it. I can't uninstall or disable it so the crashing makes my whole phone lag all the time and there's nothing I can do about it. Never buying a Samsung product again.

  70. Russ Miller-avatar

    A good app for pics and I take hundreds. After uploading to Google Maps my guide job is made easy by this and others like Google one and a couple others I like as this Samsung app has done a good job storing my pics for years. I am enjoying doing tour pictures with reviews and my pics get over one thousand hits each often . I must say after busy weeks I can build extra pics numbering in the hundreds to thousands at times getting my curiosity and others that are interested in my discoveries.

  71. Cape Dweller-avatar

    Enjoy viewing, reviewing, editing where necessary. However, why, when moving pictures to individual folders, they also remain in the original 'cature' locationas well? The earlier issues of gallery actually moved the pictures to their new location and didn't leave "copies" behind. Can that be remedued?

  72. Jan Prahl-avatar

    Great App Of course it came with the phone, but it is my preferred app. Easy to use. Easy to create albums. Photos can be viewed by date taken or by album. Easy to screenshot and edit before saving photo. Intuitive to use- even if slightly tech challenged.

  73. Ethan Cable-avatar

    Horrible update! It deleted or removed multiple photo albums that I wanted to keep. Pictures that I can't get back. Do yourself a favor and don't update if you like your pictures and memories. Hopefully there's a way to get em back. Samsung, feel free to help me retrieve my photo albums.

  74. jp jk-avatar

    Frustrating. Pictures are automatically oriented the wrong way. Portrait pictures look landscape. Landscape look Portrait. Another samsung product released too early without proper testing. Once out samsung never make any bug fixes.

    Not seeing anywhere to leave feedback about the built in editor for my phone. What WERE developers thinking?! The crop feature is in the same screen as the stylus marking tool and it is shrunken on my screen! I can't zoom in for details and when I am trying to crop photos I end up marking my picture and having to undo. If I have my phone at an angle it sometimes rotates and then LOSES the crop selection I did. Please REVERT IT BACK- phone model Samsung Note 9

  76. Tim Jones-avatar

    The problem I'm having is that some albums are all of a sudden missing from the gallery. I can still access through file manager but for some reason I can't transfer files out of those albums from file manager. Keep in mind they are not hidden. Some albums just don't show at all in the gallery

  77. Iron Heart-avatar

    PATHETIC APP as all the photos & videos received from WhatsApp, DISAPPEARS from the gallery after a day. I have even reported this to Samsung Support Team, but to No Use the problem still exists, as they haven't solved my problem till date since 06/05/2020. I spoke to Mr Diwakar, Kiranpreet Kaur, Mr Subham Rawat, Ms Simarpreet Kaur, Amanpreet Kour, Mr Aditya Arora, Mr Mohd Saqib all from Samsung Support Team & None of Them could help me to solve my issue. I REGRET HAVING SAMSUNG AS MY PHONE👎

    Im not sure why this is happening. But lately on my A20 I take photos but they don't show. Instead a grey solid colour with a circled I shows. I have checked for updates but there are none for this app.

  79. gian reno-avatar

    This is a good version i like its way of organizing image and videos.. very customisable and straight forward command gestures.. i also like the trash like a recyle bin. No crashes and hang so far.. even my memory is so jam pack.. thank u samsung gallery...

  80. Celena Baldwin-avatar

    Something recently changed that no longer allows me to move pics into folders. Now when I click on the photos that I want to move out of the default camera folder into another already created folder on my phone or SD card, I only have a "create movie" feature or Share via feature. Please don't tell me this is permanent.

  81. Jeannine M-avatar

    I depend on Samsung Gallery to find the photos that I want in a hurry. When I delete extra photos, they're gone. I have a hard time revising my photos in 'Photos'. In Gallery, I can make a b&w photo and still have it in color, too.

  82. Thunder Chunky-avatar

    Lost very good features, such as when I go to insert an image I can now only resize it but not change the shape and the angle of the inserted image. It's now useless to me. Why take out features? It makes no sense to me.

    It was working well for the past few months. It suddenly stopped, it would not allow me to edit or rename my files. Samsung help line couldn't help me to resolve the problem. I deleted and reinstalled the app to no avail. Very annoying!

  84. h kaylor-avatar

    This app would probably be amazing, but the female manager at the Kalamazoo CSL Plasma isn't bright enough to use it. So it rendered the app just as useless as she is. She entered a weeks worth of shifts, then told us those were are permanent hours because she didn't want to go through the process every week.

  85. sayace sayace-avatar

    Latest Samsung update was installed last night & made it so my photos are random colors not pictures. When I open this app the previews of the pictures are just random disorganized colors. When I open the pictures they are very small boxes that I can barely see & still just random disorganized colors.

  86. Nigel Matthews-avatar

    Works ok for what it is. However, this is the only factory installed app that crashes a lot. Also (and this really needs work) the crop function is WAY too jumpy and tries to snap to predefined aspect ratios. Please add an option to disable that.

    Ever since the update (v5.4.11) as of 5/15/20, Galerry doesn't save what I have edited any more. It save a about a few steps, but ignored the rest of the edition, especially my drawing. This is frustrating! Come on Samsung. Please fix!!!!

  88. Jenny Owens-avatar

    This app is awful it removes photos and i can not find them, i have lost all my babies 1st year including her birth and 1st birthday she is now 13 months old and i have been left with very few of her photos of her 1st year and her milestones. I will never get a samsung phone again! To say i am fuming is a understatement. Stick with apple!!! 😡

  89. Doyle Peake-avatar

    Easy to move copy pictures . Reformat your sd cards. Then save pictures to the sd card. You must save pictures to the sd card. The internal storage is short and inhibits downloads if internal pictures memory is full. The phone will lock up. Watch your internal memory status! 4/8/2020 dcp

  90. Melvin Davies-avatar

    It is hard to find specific saved files such as items from LinkedIn and other applications. Other than that you can access screenshots pretty quickly. There are areas where I can only blur and delete parts of images and I cannot use paint. Having paint available across the Samsung Gallery on all photos would be great.

  91. Imie Nazwisko-avatar

    Really its making mess of sorting pictures. I see lot of pictures for a date when i checked the file management for created and modified date it was diffrent. Eg: there are around 5000 picures showing on 1st march. When i checked the file directly its created/modifyied date are totally diffrent like past 2 year pictures coming on one date ie 1st march. Its really mess my photos and unable to find the correct order pics

  92. Janet Carter-avatar

    It works well and let's me see lots of photos in one place. However, when I look for some photos, they aren't in gallery and I have to search all of my documents and other files. How can I get all my photos to go straight to Gallery?

  93. Steph Mitch-avatar

    Something weird just happened. My albums used to be lined up on the left, now they go across the screen horizontally. How do I get all the albums aligned vertically again?

  94. Daryl Yiong-avatar

    Hello Samsung, are you serious in business, I had feedbacked below issue for the improvement of all but nothing is happening. Below was Reported on 13jun20... I would Wish if this App allow me to tagged my photos to my Contacts or others like WhatsApp, FB Profile picture directly from this App instead of going to my Contact App or so & come back to search for the photo from Gallery. It will be great if it can be done both ways. Look forward to your GOOD WORK.... Thanks 😊

  95. Colonel Child-avatar

    Just lost over half of my albums. They're still in the file structure, but the app doesn't see them anymore. And, there are 843 items in the "camera" file, but the gallery app says there are 80. Poof! Just gone.

  96. Tim Teebken-avatar

    I've used Samsung gallery over several phones now. I've tried other leading gallery competitors including the big G option, but I always come back to this gallery app. It's simple, attractive ui, reliable, and integrates well with camera and other apps.

  97. Omar Elnogoomi-avatar

    Absolutely frustrating that the gallery app doesn't show videos that i transferred from my iphone (.mov) You should make the transition from apple to Samsung easier, This is unacceptable!! I hope that you fix it in the next update! So that i wouldn't need a third party all to view my old videos. Best regads

  98. Missy Dutille-avatar

    I hate this app. It is invasive. Just appeared on my phone and it seems its only purpose is to spy on me. It won't let me uninstall it. Privacy invasion. It sucks. Thanks for giving me something i dont want and not taking it back.

    Several of my saved photos are slowly losing their images, from one side to gradually the next. Why is that? Something needs to be done. I dislike this app. Emailed them a copy of one of my many photos - no response.

    When you take a photo and want to see it/edit/share, it gets stuck processing SOMETHING and you can't perform any action on it. It takes up to a day for the image to be released and usable. I guess I'm moving back to google photos which never had this issue
