    Gallery's strange behavior

    I am very new to android, so please pardon me for the noob questions. I just bought my SGS II 3 days ago. While exploring the phone, i notice in the task manager that the gallery is on/ activated. Today, i found some pictures of ads and some advertismnt trilers in my gallery. I have not download them before. Why is my gallery connecting to the network? It makes no sense to me... How do i stop that? Thank you.

    It could be from an app you downloaded

    +1. More than likely, the gallery is finding image files that were put on your SD card by another app. I've had the same thing happen a couple times.

    Yeah the Media Scanner is beast on this phone and picks up on images it really shouldn't. I have images in there from webpages I have saved too.

    The gallery is not storing anything. Just finding what's already on your card. Some apps (particularly browsers) cache images to your card. If you don't want the images, you'll have to dump the app that put them there.

    The best part is... I dont know which app put those ads/ pictures in there.

    So looks like I will just have to go in and delete them everyday.

    I don't know where they come from either. Nut they do show up once on a great while. Just delete them.

    Usually you can look at the details of the picture in the gallery and it will say the Album(folder) it's in. Then it's just figuring out what app made/uses that folder.
