Top 13 Tips for Using the Gallery App Like a Pro
Except for pure Android smartphones, the majority of Android smartphones come with the Gallery app. Google Photos comes pre-installed on those phones, which isn’t a suitable gallery app in my opinion. I’ve always found that having a good Gallery software helps me manage my images appropriately.

Tips and Tricks for Creating a Simple Gallery
I truly missed the normal gallery app when I switched to a stock Android phone. I choose Simple Gallery after trying a number of apps from the Play Store. Ahem! Do not be fooled by the name.

It is compatible with a wide range of devices, including the Mi A2, Google Pixel, Samsung Note series, and many others.

Gallery App is free to download.
With a built-in photo editor, the Simple Gallery app offers a plethora of useful tools. So, today, we’ll go through the top 13 ways to get the most out of the Simple Gallery app.
Let’s get this party started.

1. DISABLE FOLDER MODE.
For viewing media files on your phone or tablet, Simple Gallery offers two ways. You will view all of the stuff in the corresponding directories by default. However, you can disable the folders and see the photographs’ snapshots as large thumbnails.

To do so, go to the app’s top-right corner and tap the three-dot icon. Then, from the menu, choose Show all folders content.

2. IN ALL IMAGES MODE, PLAY THE SLIDESHOW
You have the option to launch a slideshow while viewing photographs without folders. The slideshow is a built-in feature that doesn’t require any additional software.

To play it, go to the above-mentioned ‘Show all Folders content’ option. Then select Slideshow from the three-dot menu once more. You’ll be given the slideshow options. You can change them to your liking.

3. CHANGE THE SORTING MODE
Sorting items by name isn’t for everyone. Simple Gallery, thankfully, allows you to categorize photographs in a variety of ways. You can sort photos by path, size, date taken, date updated, and so on. You can even adjust whether the nature is ascending or decreasing.

The Sort by option is directly available in the top bar on the app’s home screen in the folder view. If you want to see all of the content in a folder, go to the three-dot menu and select Sort by.

4. FOLDERS WITH PIN
Another noteworthy feature of the app is the ability to pin folders. These folders will always be the first to become available. It’s especially useful if you have a lot of folders.

To pin a folder, press and hold it. Then, at the top, tap the Pin symbol.

5. DRAGGING TO SELECT
If you wish to select numerous files or directories, you normally do it by tapping on each one separately. However, you can acquire it in a different way here. Simply choose the first item and drag your finger across the other items you wish to select without releasing it.

6. FOLDER COVER IMAGE CHANGE
The app’s cover photo is set to the most recent image in the folder by default. It does, however, provide you the option to modify it.

To do so, hit the three-dot icon in the top-right area after selecting the folder. Then select Change cover image from the drop-down menu.

7. FOLDER HIDDEN
The software allows you to hide either a folder or a file. The procedure is simple: choose the item and touch the three-dot menu. Then choose Hide folder/file from the drop-down menu.

8. CHANGE THE NUMBER OF COLUMNS
You can alter the column count if you’re viewing the folders in Grid style rather than List mode. Meaning, you’ll be able to see more folders, saving screen space and reducing the need to scroll.

12 Simple Gallery Tricks and Tips
To do so, hit the three-dot icon in the top-right corner and select Increase or reduce column count option. To alter the folder count, pinch and zoom in and out.

9. MEDIA FOR FILTERING
Pictures, movies, GIFs, RAW images, and SVGs are among the media files supported by the program. Unless turned off, all of these will be visible in the app.

Tap the Filter media option from the three-dot symbol to filter media files. Then uncheck the box next to the file type you want to hide.

10. FAVORITE PHOTOS
Individual media files cannot be favorited or starred in most gallery apps. The Simple Gallery app, thankfully, does.

In Simple Gallery, open a photo or video and tap the Star symbol at the bottom. It’ll take you to the Favorite album, which is pinned to the top and easy to find.

11. IMAGE EDITING
The program includes a built-in photo editor, which is not immediately evident. Crop, mirror, flip, rotate, filters, and other basic editing options are available.

Access an image in the app and hit the Edit (pencil) icon to open the editor. Then, from the list of programs, select Editor.

12. MANAGE ACTIONS AT THE BOTTOM
You’ve probably seen the four small icons at the bottom of each image. Star, Edit, Share, and Delete are some of the options. You can change any of them with an icon of your choice if you don’t use them very often.

To do so, open the app and click Settings from the three-dot menu. Then scroll down to Manage visible bottom activities and tap it. Enable the action you want to use here.

13. COLOR CHANGE IN THE APP
Finally, if the default app colors do not appeal to you, you can change them to your liking. To do so, click the three-dot icon and select Settings. Then select Customize colors from the drop-down menu. You can also alter the overall theme from this page.

SIMPLICITY LEADS TO SUCCESS.
The software is simple to use and does not have a sophisticated interface, but it is also highly powerful. The aforementioned Simple Gallery app tips and techniques will make you fall in love with it.

The developer is also working with the app, which is a plus. You can contact the developer at any time if you have a problem or want a new feature.
