Samsung Galaxy S8, just like Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus, is renowned for its camera features and the quality of the photographs it takes. That’s one of the reasons why users have their Gallery full of photographs.
However, it appears that the place where you normally store your photographs can play you tricks at times. Some users reported pictures randomly disappearing from their Galleries, which is, indeed, a very strange thing.
So, you take a picture, you save it on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus’s memory, and you no longer find it in the Android gallery. It may not appear from the very beginning, or it may be there for a while and then suddenly disappear.
Reasons obviously vary for this weird situation, but we’re going to show you two solutions that our readers successfully used to solve this problem so far.
Solution #1 – Restart the device
Both Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus can sometimes present some bugs or glitches. The simplest, fastest and least invasive troubleshooting option is to restart the device. This one works like charm many times.
The reason why this could work is that the media scanner of your Android device searches for new images with every reboot of the device. So, when you restart the smartphone, chances are that the photos that miraculously disappeared (though they were stored in the device’s memory) will be identified and displayed in the Gallery app.

Solution #2 – Install another Gallery app
If the reboot didn’t do the trick, an alternative Gallery app could be the solution. We recommend you to try the QuickPic app, available in the Google Play Store.
After you download and install it, launch the app and see if you can find all the pictures stored on your phone with the QuickPic. If so, it means that the error is in the Android Gallery.
To fix it, you will have to perform a wipe cache on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus. This guide from here will teach you how to do it step by step.
