How to Recover a Deleted Photo on Android?

Android phones are extremely popular and are incredibly simple to use. However, one thing that may bug you with your Android device is the limited storage – but you can’t really do anything about it other than deleting some apps and media files. Now, deleting files, apps or even images from your Android phone is easy, but what about recovering a photo that you have already deleted?

Buy Airtel Prepaid with exciting benefits!

Relax, it is not just you. There are many others who end up deleting important or memorable photos from their Android phones while trying to clear out storage space. If you are one of those, then do not worry, you haven’t lost that photo forever (yet!).

You will discover how you can redeem or recover your deleted photos/images on your Android phone.

Recover your deleted photos by using the trash can on your Android

If you have already deleted some photos that you wish to recover, then you will find them within the trash section of the gallery app on your phone. How to find it? Easy – you just have to open the gallery app first. Now go to settings and check for a trash folder or something similar. 

In the trash folder, you will find all the images that you had initially deleted from your phone. From here, select the images that you wish to restore and then it will be done. You can also choose to delete the already deleted images from the trash section but do note that doing so will ensure that these images will be deleted from your phone, forever.

Recover your deleted photos from Android after a factory reset by using the Google Photos app

When you perform a factory reset on your Android phone, it basically returns your phone to a state as it initially was when you switched it on for the very first time, after buying it. Thus, after a factory reset, you will have to set up your Android phone from scratch – log in to your Google account, download the regular apps that you use, fix the settings according to your convenience, and more.

Now, if you have an Android device where the Google Photos app is working and you had backed up all the images before hitting a factory reset, then there is a way out for you.

Here are the steps to recover your deleted photos from Android Photos after doing a factory reset:

  • Go to Google Photos
  • Make sure you are logged in to your Google Account where all the photos were originally backed up
  • Click the profile icon on the top right corner
  • Select backup and sync
  • Download the backed-up photos
  • You will now be able to see all the backed-up images on your Google Photos app 
  • Choose the photos that you wish to see again and click on Restore
