If you receive a picture in email, how do you save it to your gallery on Fire?
I sent jpg to my Kindle email. It appears on the shelf on the 'home page' (the opening page when turn my Kindle on), and it appears in my DOCS, but not in the Gallery - even after I turn the Kindle off then on again. I hope to simply put pictures into the Gallery without needing to go through my computer ... ?

My Kindle fire has suddenly stopped putting the photos that I have taken into the gallery despite me pressing save. It then says saved but goodness knows where. I can't find them in my gallery. This has only just started happening.

I transferred some images to my fire HDX 7" and it doesn't let me view them in file name order is there any way around it?

I just got my kindle fire and there is NO gallery app installed. So now how do I get photos from my email? I have tried the "photos" on the tool bar, but it won't allow my to do anything but view my email images.
Very frustrating!

Please advise,

I can't find my gallery. Where should I look for it or do I have to download it myself?????

I did contact Amazon directly. The contact couldn't figure it out and gave it to others and said they'd get back to me. They've contacted me via email since saying they were still working on it. So, so far, nothing has changed. They seem to be mystified.

I am having the same problem. I used to be able to send pictures from e-mail to my gallery, but now it says they have gone to the "Download Directory". I see that no one has answered the previous posters about this problem. Has anyone contacted Amazon directly? Does anyone know how to access the Download Directory. I go to downloads and only see audio posts, not pictures.

Gallery App 1st Gen K-Fires -- I used to be able to send things from Gallery to an email account with the "share" click, but recently I've noticed it's no longer highlights. Does anyone know what's going on there?

I've downloaded photos both ways; i.e., attached to a regular email via my gmail or ymail accounts, opened on the Kindle, then downloaded, and sent to the device's email address. Both work.

Could you try emailing your photos to your kindle address??? Just a thought.

I believe I accidentally deleted the pre-installed gallery app from my Kindle Fire. How do I get it back?

Is there a way to password Gallery so that not just anyone can view photos stored on my kindle?

There is no galley app on the more recent Kindle Fire's, only on the 1st gen model. Photos are under the "Photos" tab, and personal videos can be accessed using the Personal Videos App under the "Apps" tab.

Hello, Please help me solve my issue I can not seem to find the Gallery app on the Kindle fire what so ever, I have gone through the procedures of going from App Finders, to scanning the firmware and my Kindle Fire does not seem to have it what so ever, Also If I am transferring Mp4 Videos to my Kindle Fire what folder do I place them?

Also I think the name up above is slightly incorrect lol. (as in myn)

I hope someone can help me! My downloads have stopped going automatically into the gallery. I can see them in the "downloads" section of a browser window but I cannot get them out of there into my gallery. Pics use to automatically pop straight into my gallery -what happened??

I am saving a lot of pictures like from Tumblr. On to my gallery I will go to the gallery and there will be 400 on there and then go back on the next day and there is like 380 photos. I don't know what to do? Is my kindle fire erasing my pictures or did I set it to do that??

I've recently downloaded an app and just simply wish to add a photo to the profile.
Seems easy enough but when I choose the photo I want as my profile picture it does
not upload. What does pop up is a message, stating that it can not find image crop app.
