    My gallery shows me nothing like I don't have photos but when I go in DCIM folder all my photos are there. Any suggestions?
    I try to clear cache and data.

    Check the permissions for gallery app...
    Settings > apps > gallery > permissions
    It should have storage permissions...

    did you try any other app? like Google photos maybe? you can try uninstalling any updates to the stock gallery too to see if that fixes the problem.

    @bf68 try that. Also, thanks for the screenshots. That actually does help a lot when troubleshooting

    Oh oops. I didn't realize that the creator of the thread posted that message. I thought that was another user agreeing with your post

    i found a solution, it was a .nomedia File in root folder.
    No idea where the file comes from.

    Great! Thanks this helped me. If anyone does not see the .nomedia file, remember to show hidden files

    Hey where did you find that file and what did you do. I am facing the same issue. Gallery doesn't show any images, Google photo shows but closes in 2 second. I can see my photos in file manager but can't open as neither gallery no photos work. Tried even capturing one camera image but it won't open after shot

    Same here, my gallery isn't showing anything, same as any other gallery app I tried. All my photos are still in the storage of my phone, I just can't open them anywhere...
