    So whenever i save a picture using the default browser... it will not show up in the gallery :mad:

    How do you fix this? Extremeeeellyyy irritating.
    When i look at downloads on the browser it will show only the picture you clicked on as being in the gallery, but as soon as you open the regular gallery outside the browser download menu... it wont show up.

    Who would have thought it would be so hard to update a twitter pic on such a "smart"phone -__-

    Can you locate the file location and actually find the file using something like Astro?

    If yes, check to see if there is a file named, .nomedia.... That will cause the Gallery app to not pick it up. You can either move the file into a folder that is currently being picked up by the Gallery, or else delete the .nomedia file from within the folder.

    One other thing to check, is the pic file being assigned an appropriate extension?
