    Welcome to Android Central! What apps are you using to download? If they're from the web, are you using Chrome, the stock Internet browser, or something else? And are the Pinterest images being downloaded via the Pinterest app, or on the mobile browser?

    Hi I download most of my pictures from the pinterest app directly. I use it a lot and have no idea why they are no longer showing in my gallery like they used to. It is the same with snapchat pictures

    Use your My Files app to look around for a specific download directory for Pinterest. It might be a subdirectory under /data or /Android. If you can find the directory, see if it has a file called ".nomedia"--if it does, delete it, then see if the images show up in the Gallery. (".nomedia" instructs the system to ignore that directory and any subdirectories when looking for images to add to the Gallery database.) The problem here is that the Pinterest app might generate that .nomedia file again, so you may have to manually copy or move those downloaded photos to some other directory (like the Pictures directory).
