[Q&A] Photos in gallery don't show up in my computer

Hi! A bunch of my photos don't show up in my computer when I connect my phone to it.
I tried using both options (transfer photos and transfer files).

There's a gap between may 12 and June 2. They show perfectly in the gallery, but they are not there when I try to download them.

Does anyone know what's going on?

Thanks!!

try sorting your photos by date modified on ur computer... maybe a different naming convention was used?

Thanks! I tried that, but had no luck. I even tried searching them by name...
I don't know what's going on. It's so weird...

when you check your photo info on your gallery app, does it show the photo storage location?  this is a bit strange, never had this problem myself

If you're exclusively using the stock camera, check both the internal storage and the memory card. IF you're using 3rd-party camera software like Open Camera, check its storage settings or take a pic and check the information of the image, locate that directory and your pics will be there. Gallery app shows pictures saved in different directories so seaching on only one directory would not show all the pictures captured.

Hi! I did that too, but couldn't find them. I will upload screenshots of both the phone and the pc tomorrow. Perhaps there's something I'm not seeing.
It is so strange!!

it is so strange indeed!  I guess my only other possible solution is to upload those missing photos from your phone to a cloud storage location, and then download back to your computer after.. sorry I'm not of much help!

Here are a few screenshots I had promised. I did notice that in my computer it says "shared internal storage", while in my phone it's just "internal storage". I thought it must be the same, but now I don't know anymore...
