    Default Gallery

    When I open the gallery I see all my pictures and some are in Camera and some are in ScreeenShot folder.

    What paths are being used to gather all my pictures in the gallery?

    I need that info because I want to use a ftp client, connect to another phone which I am running a server on. I must know the different paths in order to access my pictures.
    It's kind of a backup solution.

    Default Re: Gallery

    It's not so much that there are specific paths--Android has a Media Scanner that will scan all folders for photos, and include them in the Gallery. You could make any folder and call it "Test" or whatever you want, place a photo in there, and Media Scanner will find it and put it in the Gallery. The exceptions are folders that have a ".nomedia" file, which instructs the Media Scanner to ignore that folder.

    That being said, the directory for Camera photos is typically /storage/sdcard0/DCIM/Camera/ (or sdcard1 if it's the external SD), and Screenshots are in storage/sdcard0/Pictures/Screenshots. With later versions of Jellybean and KitKat, the I think the directory starts with /storage/emulated/0/ instead of /storage/sdcard0.
