    Default Photo gallery changed to camera roll

    When I touched the "gallery" icon I would go to folders of all my pics. I did some cleaning with Battery Doctor. Now it goes to Camra Roll and I have to go to timeline to view pics. How do I ge my gallery back?

    Try uninstalling the Gallery updates.

    Play Store: Motorola Gallery

    if you have the update, touch the upper left corner of the screen where it says Gallery and has 3 slashes (not the dots in the upper right corner). a drop box gives you three options, Camera Roll, Timeline and Albums. The third choice would be what you were looking for.

    Thanks Tyro. I did figure that part out but I didn't want to have that. I uninstalled the update and it is where I want it now. Thanks anyway.

    I'm having the same problem on my Samsung galaxy s3. Before I used to be able to upload from my Gallery, but now it's called Camera Roll. How do I use my Gallery to upload pictures to Facebook?
