Android Central Question

Hi, recently I found out that when I download images from chrome they no longer show up in the gallery. I get the notification that the download is complete but the images don't show up in the gallery or in the my files app. I checked to see if chrome has access to my storage and it does so that is not the issue. I also deleted the cache and data for the chrome and gallery app and restated the phone and that didn't work either. I'm at a lost here did anyone else have this problem. Any help is appreciated thank you. Btw I have the Galaxy A20 if that is of any relevance

Welcome to Android Central! What directory is the image downloading to? I just tried it on my Pixel 3 XL, and the image was saved to the /Download directory. Use a file manager to confirm that's where your images are saving to. Also use the file manager to see if there's a .nomedia file in that directory as well, because that would instruct the system to ignore that directory when scanning for images to add to the gallery database.
