Did you know you can restore gallery photos accidentally deleted from your phone? Here is how to recover deleted photos from your phone gallery.

Those photos you deleted are not totally lost, you can still recover them within a period not longer than 7days from the day of deletion.

My android phone sends deleted photos from the gallery to the trash can, where you can recover it at a later date.

Yours can do it too, though it may vary, depending on the model of phone that you are using.

This tip works with photos deleted within the phone gallery.
