    Restart the phone, or use an app like media.Re.Scan. Gallery gets its list of pictures from the Media Scan database, which isn't rebuilt when you download files. (It's rebuilt when you turn the phone on or restart it.)

    (The philosophy is that if you have a few thousand media files on the phone, and every media app had to scab the whole phone for files every time you ran it, you;d be spending a lot of time waiting for apps to scan the phone. this way, Media Scan does it once, builds a database, and an app like Gallery cal ask for all "picture" files - and SQL is fast, it gets the complete list almost immediately.)
