    Hi all

    Hoping someone can help - I've used these forums loads of times to solve my issues but never needed to actually post!!

    HTC Desire on Froyo, unlocked phone.

    For a while now the thumbnail gallery has sometimes merged pictures - so on the thumbnail it's actually a combination of more than 1 picture. This hasn't really bothered me until recently because the more pictures I take the worse it's getting, so much so that I can't always tell which picture I'm going to be looking at until I actually select it. In every case the picture views correctly on the screen when I view them one at a time, it's just a problem with the thumbnails.

    I've attempted to clear the gallery cache which made it appear slightly better but not by much.

    I've checked the DCIM / .thumbnails folder but there's just loads of files in there saying file and RAW file and to be honest I don't know what it's all about.

    I've trawled the net and checked the forums but cannot seem to see a solution - does anyone know what I can do in order to solve this? :confused:

    Many thanks in advance

    I get this a lot when trying to select images for new icons. It's very annoying and I haven't been able to find a solution. As a workaround I view the images using astro instead.

    Lilly,

    I noticed this problem on less than 1% of my pictures but you're right, it's annoying. I too deleted my thumbnails and let the system recreate them the next time I went into the directory. This fixed all of the existing errors, but different pictures (well, just one this time) had the same type of problem. So, I tried opening that "mixed thumb" picture...I rotated it left, then back right, then backed out....presto. Fixed. Now I don't know how many of these files you're having trouble with so fixing them individually might be a pain but it gets the job done, and still faster than deleting and recreating them all. This basically forces the system to recreate just that one thumb. Good luck!

    Go to SD. Delete android/data/com.cooliris.media

    This will force all thumbnails to recreate. It may take a while
