    -maybe the gallery app doesn't update images, try to kill it and open it again
    -maybe in the folder there is a file ".nomedia", delete it
    -maybe try another gallery app or the second fotos app from google, go to "on this device"...
    -maybe check if the images are really saved with a file explorer

    it could be so many things...

    Did everything you said, but I'm still having this issue. As ws_volt said, only one picture did show up in the gallery (the very first one I downloaded), but then nothing. :(

    (I'm thinking about performing a factory reset, but I don't know if that will fix the problem)

    I had similar issue, it seemed to be something with the google photo app that was conflicting with the gallery app. I wish I could be of more help but I messed with so many settings and apps that I cannot remember what ultimately resolved the issue for me. Might be something to look at though to see if you can find any conflicts there.

    After spending months trying to fix mine, by looking at others solutions I just gave up. Until today when I had a revelation that I could move my downloads folder into DCIM which has solved my problem. - Apologies for this being 8 months on and using cm12 ;)

    I have the same problem with downloaded pictures since yesterday. Also since yesterday all my folders from gallery have disappeared. I used a file manager to see if I still have the pictures. They are on the phone but cannot see them anymore in Gallery. Also verified not to have any "no media blocked".

    I did all steps iperryt said above and no fix.

    I tried to use any other galleries as quick pic, piktures, Google camera... But my folders (Bluetooth, Screen shot, Download, some custome made folders, Facebook, Instaframe, Instagrame, etc) and any camera pictures older than yesterday refuse to appear.

    I tried also to sync gallery.

    What do I have to do to get back my gallery as it was before yesterday morning 23 April 2015?

    Click on the Download images from the notification and then view it once. Then only it will be added to gallery. Wierd issue. Faced the same issue in Nexus 5 on lollipop, HTC Desire 820 Kitkat and OnePus One on both 11s and COS12.

    -Use ES File Explorer search for nomedia and delete every file with name .no media
    -then move every folder with media(photos, videos,music,etc) in a new folder and then again move those folders back to there place
    Its done now you can see ur media files in all apps.

    Clear cache and data from the Gallery app. Restart the device. Check again in gallery

    Open them with the filemanager, sometimes the pictures are not downloaded correctly so you will have to redownload

    I just started having this problem yesterday. I'm not sure about the solution but I think it may be because of the downloaded pictures itself.. I noticed that these pictures don't seem to have meta information like name or date in them. Through a file manager they have a name and created date, but in the gallery those fields show up as n/a. Could be the reason why they aren't being read by any gallery app.

    Update: I opened those pictures I'm Aviary and just clicked done without making any changes (didn't even let it complete saving just exited the app). Thus causes Aviary to save it in its own folder with the missing meta info so they show up in gallery just fine then. But has to be done for each.

    I had the same problem, images were not showing up on gallery and music was not showing up on music player, both internal and Google Play Music. This all happened after I transferred all my data from my old Samsung Galaxy S5 to my new OnePlus 3.

    I searched all internet and had no success, but then I saw somewhere doing a Media Re-scanning will solve the problem, I installed an app named "media.Re.Scan" from play store and ran it, and I was amazed to see that all my media is now being shown on both Music Player and Gallery.

    If you are having the same problem, do try the above app, it worked for me, it may work for you too.
