    Some images not opening up inside the gallery in android

    I recently took some pictures of my parents in my mobile phone running on android. But I am not able to open all the images. Only some of the images are opening up. What can be the reason? Is this due to any image format issues?

    Hello Guest,
    No, the format issue is not there as the pictures have been taken from the phone's camera itself. But, the size of the image may be too large. So, it would take a longer time. Just do this simple thing. Go to Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage Applications, find the Gallery option and tap on it. Now, simply tap on "Force Stop". Then exit to main homescreen. After a few seconds, when you open Gallery now, it will refresh all the images and your photo will be displayed. But, if still not working, then you can first crop the image on PC to a suitable phone size, then transfer the edited one via USB. Now it will definitely load the image in the gallery and you will be able to view it. Thank you...... :-)

    No Image format issues will not occur if you have taken the picture using the Same device. The device will store the image in the format it supports. The reasons may be it might have corrupted, deleted Accidently and you are trying to access the Thumbnails instead of the Picture.

    Connect the SD card to PC and access the DCIM folder, you will get the picture, If not then it is corrupted. Make sure the SD card is not damaged.

    Hi,
    The Images that are not opening which were taken from the phone might be due to two reasons. They might due to corruption the camera application which while taking the photos might have made the photos to get corrupted. The second reason might be due to some corruption in the Memory card that is photo while being saved when saved in a bad block memory location might cause the problem. In order to get rid of the problem if that is due to Camera you have to reset the phone by opening the "Settings" from the application drawer and then select the option as "Privacy" where you can reset the phone. If the problem is with your Memory card then you may have to format the SD card with the help of the phone by navigating to "Settings->Storage" and then copy the requires things from a PC to the phone by the use of a Data Cable.
    Hope this helps.

    its not a problem with image issue format..
    since you are using same device, the image formats will be compatible to what a device can support..
    it may happen that pic is not stored properly..
    or that your memory device is corrupted or damaged..
    in that case you can change the SD card.. or try checking it for errors..

    Hello,
    I think some images got corrupted . Here you don't have any image format issue.
    If you remove your battery without switching it off OR if you remove SD card without unmounting it then there are chances of corrupting your memory devices.It may corrupt some files.
    And it may also because of virus attacks.
    If your SD card gotta problem then format it OR if your Phone memory got the problem then do a Factory reset.
    Hope it will help you.


    Thank you.
