    I'm trying to locate the files that are in my gallery in the file system through folder management. Can anybody tell me where they're located? My phone is rooted but I'm not sure where the gallery photos are

    All over the internal and external storage on the phone. When you start or restart it, Media Scanner builds a database of all media files it can find. Gallery uses that database to determine which files to display.

    Gallery doesn't have its own storage area - no photo display app does. (Most media apps don't - sound apps look in the same database to see what to display to you, unless they maintain their own playlist.)

    So how do I insure my photos and images are stored on my sd card? Seems the only way to move them is from file manager. But if I can't find them...

    Look for a folder(s) named DCIM. All the pictures taken by the camera should be in there. You probably have one in your internal storage and will have one on the sd card if the phone is setup to store them on there.
