    When I email myself pictures and download them it says it saves them in storage/emulated/0/Download/filename.jpg when I open my gallery it doesn't show the picture and I can't figure out where I need to go to see them. lol

    I thought in the past I as seeing them in gallery but now it seems to have stopped doing that. Even after I reboot my phone I can't see them still.

    Any ideas?

    Gallery shows what Media Scanner found when you started or restarted the phone, or ran an app like media.Re.Scan. Downloading doesn't trigger a rescan, so the file is there, but it's not in the media database.

    Gallery and similar apps only show what's in the database (so they don't have to scan the whole phone every time you open them - that would take time to open the app each time. (That holds true for music apps, video apps, anything that uses media files - they'd each have to scan the whole phone each time you opened one.)
