    Default How to access deleted photos from "photos" app?

    I accidently deleted some photos from my Samsung Android 4.0.4. How can I get them back, or is it too late?

    Thank you!!

    Welcome to Android Central! With the Photos app (the one that is integrated with Google+), if you swipe in from the left and scroll down, you can access the Trash. You'll see photos that you may have deleted. Long press the photo, and then tap the curved arrow icon at the top to restore it. I believe it will be restored to your Google+ Photo album in the cloud (but not necessarily locally on your phone).

    Welcome to Android Central
    If you deleted them from your gallery, it's highly unlikely that you'll be able to retrieve them. Sorry

    Well, what do you mean you deleted them by accident? From your photos in the phone or when connected to a PC?

    Default Re: accessing photos from "photos" that were deleted

    I sent them to my gmail account and deleted them from the phone. Then, in a weird turn of events, they got deleted in gmail, too.

    BUT when I open FOAP to upload pictures to foap.com, it gives me two options: Gallery or Photos. When I click Gallery the missing photos are not there, but when I click Photos the missing pictures are there. So if they're showing up in the Photos of the foap app, how can I get 'em?

    This. They're not in your gallery because they were deleted, but if you have your photos backing up to G+, they should still be there.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! They were in Google+ and I'm busily sharing them to one of my e-mail accounts now.
