    If I do a load of jiggery pokery on my pc with gallery files, the only way I can get these changes to be reflected in the gallery on the phone itself is to reboot.

    Is there a way to force the Gallery to refresh?

    I've seen an app on the market called SDRescan, but if there is a simple way with the phone to do it I would rather do it this way.

    Unmount the SD card from Settings/Storage and then remount it. That should trigger a rescan.
