    Default Camera photo review dims right away

    I have the international LG D802. In camera mode, when I press the photo icon at the bottom to review my last photo or other photos already in the gallery, the last photo opens and then almost immediately goes dim. I can't find a setting anywhere that controls this. Has anyone seen this? Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    It happens to me when I use Photos (the Google+ photo app). When I use the stock gallery app, it works fine and does not dim. If it is happening in Gallery, you got me.

    Does this happen to videos too because i had a problem like this. Heres the fix
    > gallery
    > any video
    > menu button
    > settings
    > brightness.
    that should fix the problem

    Unhappy Re: Camera photo review dims right away

    No, it doesn't happen in video mode. I just tried doing a reset in both camera and video modes, but it had no effect on this problem. Still have the problem.

    Try this.

    Settings>Apps>Swipe to all>Select Google+>Clear Defaults

    I have tried to replicate your problem in the gallery app, and I cannot get it to work. My assumption (I know, I know) was that you chose photos as the default app for displaying pictures.

    After clearing defaults, go into camera, snap a pic, push the corner button to get a preview. If it asks what app choose gallery.

    this will only work if the default is, in fact, photos.

    Lance,

    You are a gentleman and a scholar! Your instructions worked perfectly. Google+ was the culprit. I have now set the preview to Gallery and it works fine. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I wish Googs would fix the dim pic issue in photos. It's not the whole screen (buttons at bottom dont dim) and a similar thing happens to the video in Hangouts.
