Is there any way to recover photos with no obvious gallery recycling bin?

I understand the fundamentals of how to recover photos from the gallery app, but for whatever reason there is no recycling bin option in my gallery's settings.  Neither google photos or the cloud have the photo I'm looking for, though I have had sync turned on all this time. I'm using a galaxy s8 with android version 7.0, and gallery version 5.4.02.12, apparently.

Hey. if you go into the gallery and click the 3 dot menu shown in the pic you should have a recycle ♻️ bin option.

Hi,
I don't think so, I lost photo and I couldn't find a way to get it back.

As for the picture, I was able recover by downloading the mobisaver app, so that issue is solved.  But it doesnt explain why I have no recycling bin.

oh. I'm glad you got it back. I did some digging and found that samsung only added the recycle bin feature to the gallery app on android 8.0 and above so you won't have it on 7.0 sadly
