    I've tried QuickPic. Honestly, it's not any better than Photos in my opinion. Gallery would still be my choice.

    If you go to my post right above this one, I posted a link to the old KitKat Gallery. It works and I didn't get a 505

    Updated my Nexus 5 yesterday to 5.0 and the Photos app sees none of my images from any directory. Yep, tried going to "On device" from the menu, but that didn't help. QuickPic see them as normal, most are under the /sdcard/DCIM/ directory. Is this possibly because I didn't turn on the auto backup feature for Google+ and Photos never "saw" them in the first place?

    I tried another Gallery app that's relatively up-to-date (Gallery KK) and it like Photos, doesn't see anything. Well not entirely true, if I take a NEW picture, both Photos & Gallery KK see that, but again none of the pre-existing ones.

    Anyone else have this problem? I'm guessing it's a mediaserver/mediascanner issue, but none of the rescan apps I've tried seem to be happy with Lollipop, they all crash so I'm guessing there's been some OS change there.

    EDIT: fixed by deleting data for Media Storage and rebooting.

    I downloaded a gallery app since google photos is so bad... QuickPic is really good if you liked the Kitkat gallery.

    The problem with side loading the older gallery app is it probably won't get supported anymore

    I've been using MyRoll - seems like a smart alternative gallery and works perfectly on Lollipop.

    Yes, Photos replaces Gallery. If you take a screenshot and go to Photos, you should see it immediately in the "All" view. And if you swipe in from the left and select "On Device," you should see it under the Screenshots heading.
    Very true and helpful thanks

    Been debating the switch to pictures anyway. Some things I like it for, others I don't. The repeat shots of different posts to different social media being the main problem. Probably will just get used to it and after a couple weeks won't be a big deal.

    It's strange all of you are not pointing out the biggest problem in new photos. YOU CANT SELECT ALL PICTURES IN ONE SHOT like in gallery we could press and hold the folder and all were selected. In photos there is a button to select but when you do it only select the in screen pics and when you expand the folder the button vanishes and rest of pics are not selected. Then you have to manually select pics one by one. What the hell. Anyone has a clue?????????!

    After reading the AC blog on the best apps, I've started using Piktures, it looks a lot nicer than Google's Photos app and you can hide folders you don't need to see.

    I too really missed Gallery, and there wasn't an apk here, so I found one along with the apks for a bunch of other KitKat apps at this link (would link it, but as this is my first post I am not allowed to)

    Thanks for this! I was using quickpic but I love the old Gallery app more. You can crop an image in like two seconds without all the extra steps in QuickPic or Photos

    I do NOT like Photos.I don't like QuickPic either. I wish they'd just add Gallery back. So far it's the thing I dislike most about 5.0.
    I found on Google Play the old Froyo Gallery and is way better that KitKat one...
    Just take a look and you'll like it!
    No links allowed yet, search the package name on Play, you should find it...

    B. Diddy, I have similar frustration with Photo app. I have the layout you describe relative to albums, but only the photos that are on Drive show up as albums and the album names are pre-named by date and not editable Is this all the functionality available?

    Thanks for advice. Up to this point I didn't think my Nexus 5 phone was working correctly.
