    Ok, this is weird, and I'm not exactly phone smart, like my smart phone, heh...


    This started happening recently, I'd like to say just after the latest Android update (5.1.0?). I'm one of them hammerheads that like to respond to posts and threads on Facebook and text messages with a picture. The problem I'm having is, I will download a picture from the interwebz, and the picture will not appear anywhere in my phone unless I reboot, like turn the darn thing off, then back on again. After rebooting, the picture appears in my Gallery.

    I am really hoping for some help here, as this is a SUPER annoying problem.

    Thanks in advance for any advice/tips/help.

    Sounds like a bug that LG had with that update, two users reporting same issue. Might have to contact LG tech support, see if they can suggest anything.
