    Welcome to Android Central! By "photo section," do you mean the Google Photos app, or a Gallery app? Photos in the Download directory (and any other directory, as long as there isn't a file called ".nomedia" in it) will show up in the gallery app because the system scans all directories for images to add to the gallery database. The Gallery or Photos apps are not "locations" where files are saved. So if you delete the photo from the Download directory, it will disappear from the gallery app as well (assuming you didn't copy that photo somewhere else on the phone).

    If you want to keep a photo you downloaded, I suggest moving it to an appropriate directory (like the /Pictures directory). Some phones have an automatic storage cleaner function that might automatically delete files in the Download directory after a certain number of days (unless you turn that function off), so it's a good idea to keep that directory clear of any important files.
