    I was moving pictures from one album to another when I touched something and my layout changed. Before it would display albums in a column on the left of the screen and the pictures in the album on the right, while still showing the other albums. Now, it shows all albums on the entire screen and when I select one, it fills the whole screen with photos from that album but doesn't display the other album options. Help!

    Which phone do you have and what gallery app are you using? You could try opening the side menu and see it there's any setting to change the layout.

    Just tap on the hamburger menu (3 lines) at the top left and select ALBUM under SORT BY, you may have accidentally clicked on SORT BY TIME.

    I am using the Samsung Edge 7 and had the same problem I had albums on the left side and when picking an album on the right I would see the pictures in the album whilst seeing the albums on a column on the left. I changed a setting and am not able to go back to that convenient dispaly setting. My phone does not have a "hamburger" menu but instead a "Camera" and "More" Menu and no matter which option I choose I cannot go back to the vertical overview of the albums on the left side...

    Any hints on how to bring that original setting back?

    I experienced this today. Open one of your albums (the pictures will encompass the entire width of the screen), then just drag from the left side of the screen. There's the albums! I Googled trying to find a solution for quite some time, so I wanted to get a definitive answer out there!

    I had a Note 3. The grey side tab I'm not sure if you can also slide it in but depending on what you are viewing, just opened the Gallery or an album iirc...

    anneeway you can pinch and slide or twirl open two or three fingers to change layout, 2 across, 3 across, tab in or out etc.

    Tell me it works and I haven't gone completely loopy.
    I have no clue how my layout got messed up but pinching & twirling totally worked!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!
    I so never would have thought of doing that. #LoopyInCali

    When you go to your gallery, if you select album and then select a category in the album, for example if you selected downloads. Your downloaded pictures will be on the right and your other albums will be in a column on the left.

    If anyone still looking to change that thing accidental album showing and pictures or only pictures showing and no album. Basically swipe from the left side of the screen over to bring the albums on the left. This way u can see all the albums and pictures or swipe where the albums are and swipe right so u only see the pictures. Hope that helps
