    this is what worked for me on my samsung galaxy note 2 Android 4.2.x

    # unsync photos from google, facebook, etc.
    1)SETTINGS-> Add Account * (this should be right above SYSTEM area of settings)
    make a written list of all the accounts you have synced with your device
    ((go back))
    2) SETTINGS-> [name of account from the add account list] -> Sync intervals settings -> set these to none where photos listed
    3) SETTINGS-> [name of account from add accoount list] -> click on your username/name -> Sync Gallery [ ] <= uncheck

    # clear thumbnails off your phone
    4) once you are done doing this for Facebook, Google, etc. go to...
    SETTINGS-> Application Manager (slide the filter along top to ALL)
    find Gallery and click on it
    press the "Clear Data" button
    press the "Clear Cache" button

    # share, post, and view images without problems
    ENJOY having a fast gallery !

    Fixed: in my case it was dropbox causing the problem - the gallery app was trying to also show me all of my photos that were on dropbox, i.e it seemed to be hanging while trying to pulling down file lists / thumbnails from dropbox.

    The following change fixed it completly, no reset required: Gallery->touch menu icon->Settings->Dropbox Sync
    and then under both "pictures" and "videos" change it to "sync disabled" (slide the switch icon at the top right).

    Cause seems to be general cloud based sync, whether your problem is picassa or dropbox or g+ etc.

    My problem was only dropbox, on Samsung S5, stock rom, latest updates.
