Hi there, @BML. Well, we can help you out with this! Just a few questions first.

What phone are you using? Are you unable to locate your photos in the Gallery app? Could we just get a bit more info on this?

Thanks,

The Phone is a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, a rather elderly one donated by my middle son.  I am a totall new user and are feeling my way.  I had about twenty photographs and must have done something wrong because all I have now is one.  I'm thinking of buying an inepensive new Samsung J5 so that I know that I will be starting witha blank page.

Were these photos backed up anywhere? If not, we wouldn't (unfortunately) be able to retrieve them.

It sounds like the J5 would be a great phone for you!

They are not showing on the Gallery of my Samsung so I suspect that they are long gone.  A lesson well taught because I will now be much more careful.

Hi @BML

 

Do you remember anything in particular happening before they disappeared? To prevent this from happening in the future, have a look at this link here which tells you how you can back up your phone using various methods:

Really hope this helps! :smiling-face:
