    So it seems like apparently FB is part of the issue for a lot of people, but I never use it, I just have it installed because Instagram forces you to if you want to make an account. I've got the issue of having the "unfortunately android system has stopped working" whenever I try to share an image from my gallery. Based on what everyone is saying, apparently clearing the cache, factory reset, and disabling updates doesn't fix the issue, but uninstalling and disabling FB does. I have no idea what course of action I should take, so a possible solution would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm having the same issue. I uninstalled fb and fb messenger. Sharing works now. I think we would all love a long term solution.

    I also don't use Facebook app. So I looked and I figured out that my problem lied in the "Direct Share" feature. I turned it off and, voila, I no longer has the issue. My device is LG V20 running Android 8.0.0

    Welcome to Android Central! The best thing I can suggest is to send feedback to the Facebook app developer about the bug.

    This is the solution! Uninstalling Facebook had no effect, but disabling Direct Share in the settings worked! (Thanks zingzncoachtay!)

    I have the same problem with my S6. It suddenly stopped being able to share from the gallery, even to an email.

    My Galaxy S7 Edge (Rooted) quit sharing Gallery photos. When trying to Share photos opened with Gallery through MMS, Gmail, Bluetooth ect. it kept crashing after a momentary message: "Unfortunately Android has Stopped". Clearing all caches and data, rebooting, clearing Delvic and rebooting Android did not help.

    Finally went to the Samsung Galaxy store and downloaded/ reinstalled the Gallery. PROBLEM SOLVED. Works and Shares fine like before. Such a simple solution, reinstalling may work for other non-responsive messaging programs.

    Possibly Gallery root settings got messed up by one of competitors updates. Google Photos are pretty pushy as many of their programs, FB is another pushy one (mine's frozen) but that's just a guess.

    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to Android Central! When you mention clearing the cache, are you talking about wiping the system cache partition, or only clearing the Gallery app cache? Also, are the photos saved to Internal Storage or the SD card?

    I have same problem.. photos of both internal memory and sd cards are doing same.. Even after clearing data storage, nothing changed. Moreover, it didn't happend when I'm reseting my phone.. but after a few day, it occure.. mine's S7 too

    I'm using Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (version 6.0.1).

    In Gallery (built-in app), I'm easily shared a photo/video via email or to another socmed apps i.e. Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp, and also for photo editing to the Snapseed, Lightx, VSCO, AirBrush etc, by only tapping the Share button at the bottom of the photo.

    It still working on last 2 days.

    But today, when I tap the Share button, the Gallery was suddenly closed by itself, and the 'Unfortunately the Android System Stopped' appeared on screen.

    First, I guess the photo might be corrupted, so I tried to do with another photo(s) and albums, but it still happened.

    In Apps section in Setting, I cleared the cache and data in Gallery and Camera, and forced it stop. The same things also done to the another apps like Snapseed, Instagram, Facebook, including the Android System app (it's a system apps; just clear cache, cannot clear data and force stop).

    And after my phone was restart again and again and again, it still not works! Gallery suddenly closed, followed by 'Unfortunately the Android System stopped' appeared on screen. Still can't share any photo/video!!

    For your information, after stuck in 'Shared Dilemma' this evening, I have to uninstall the Open Camera app (using it since last year, no problem at all). I've no idea either this case was caused by this app or not (after using this cam app to take photos in my office today at 5.30 pm, I open the Gallery and choose some best photos for my FB posting, then the Gallery suddenly closed after clicking the Share button).

    Is it possible if the 'uninstall-then-reinstall back' some apps (version upgraded) that listed in Share button (linked) also effecting this problem?

    What should I do now? I really need your help, sir/mam.

    Thank you.

    I've found out a perfect solution..

    This problem start occuring after new update of facebook.. And more, it only happends on those mobile which has built-in facebook app. So, to have the sharing feature, it's a temporary solution that, turn off your facebook app. And after sharing, turn it on again from application manager. It's helpful to me.. another thing, if you even turn your fb app off, your account from app will not be removed

    Facebook is a main part of the problem. But not Facebook itself. After I went into
    phones setting
    Application manager
    Facebook app manager
    The top right had an option for "more"
    Click on Uninstall updates
    It'll go to the original version.

    Once it was reset to the original Facebook, the problem stopped and I do not need to disable/enable the app every time I need to share a picture.

    Hope this helps!
