    gallery issues

    Hey guys I have some issues with my s4. When I take photo's all seems well I can view in gallery etc. for some reason shortly afterwards when accessing the gallerymost of my photos seem to have a big grey block over them. Not all photos do just certain random ones.

    I've tried rebooting the phone but no joy. Any ideas as to what this could be?

    just noticed that the greyed out block doesnt show in the thumbnail pics at the bottom but only when you try to view it in full screen.

    what do you mean by paste pics? like screenshot? power+home. to actually paste a pic (like copy & paste) you need to copy it first to the clipboard (go to gallery>open a pic>menu softkey>copy to clipboard). to copy/move a pic in the 'my files' app, you can put check marks next to the pics and touch the three bars (top right - move/copy).

    did you format the sd card to the phone before the pictures were taken? how many gigs?

    My gallery just started acting up. I also had a few pics show up half gray. Also it keeps locking up and crashing. Not happy. Quickpics is ok but airview doesn't work with this third party app. I may try a new sd card.... any other thoughts.

    you can try clearing data and cache for gallery, doing a battery pull, and formatting your sd card w the phone (settings>more tab>storage>format sd card). save stuff to your computer before you format.

    I did all that you mentioned a few times with the exception of pulling and formatting the sd card.

    This app is really messed up. It completely locked up my phone last night. Got a strange error that stated android system shut down or something to that effect. Then the phone rebooted. I have since disabled the gallery app and downloaded the older ics gallery. I hope sombody comes up with a fix for this in the very near future. The phone is working great again. Odd this popped up out of nowhere.
