    I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 I have loaded some photos on to the memory card, and I click on gallery and can select a folder and view the photos as thumbnails. When I click on an individual file to view as full screen the tablet takes me back to the desktop and comes out of gallery altogether.
    Is there anything I can do to view the photos full screen?

    Sounds odd. Has it always done this or just recently? What size are the files?

    The tablet is around 1 year old and has always been temperamental with viewing photos and going into the gallery. The files are around 3mb files. I tried taking them off of the card and reloading, without success

    Can you try some smaller sized files? Wondering if you didn't run out of memory?
    I encountered something similar on my phone just briefly but I reopened on second try. Do you have an alternate app like ES File Manager to use to open with, as a test?

    ancius thanks for your help. I did have some smaller files on the gallery but none will view full screen through gallery. I looked for other apps and although they do not allow you to view by folder, they do allow me to view a larger photo with top and bottom borders
