If you love taking pictures, you've probably got hundreds of photos saved to Gallery or DCIM folder in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. If you somehow deleted a precious photo or entire album of images off the phone by accident, it would be a catastrophe.

Granted, the pictures that have been lost or deleted can be recovered from Note10, and there're a few ways saving your bacon. Read the post and pick which tool for retrieving photos on Galaxy Note 10/ Note 10+ is best for you. The solid options are here: The most obvious choice is the Trash within Samsung Cloud and Google Photos. If you haven't synced photos to the cloud, the third-party Android Data Recovery is a surprisingly robust option. Or, you can go with Data Recovery to recover pictures from SD card on Samsung Note10+ (Note 10 lacks a microSD card slot).

1. Samsung Cloud Trash

If you are missing the photos that should be kept in the Gallery, go to check the Trash folder immediately and restore deleted photos on Samsung Galaxy Note10 within a grace period of 15 days. It's important to note that if you haven't set up Samsung account to sync pictures onto Samsung Cloud, this unfortunately won't work.

  • Go to Settings > Accounts and backup > Samsung Cloud > Gallery.
  • Choose Trash, and select the pictures you've deleted recently but need them back.

2. Google Photos

This is pretty simple, which you'd expect - as long as you sync photos with Google Photos. As it turns out, when you delete a picture in Gallery album, it goes into Google Photos' own trash. Just find the Trash folder and you should still have the deleted photo back to Samsung Note10 memory from any point in time over the past 60 days.

  • Head to Google Photos on Note10.
  • Tap three dots (Menu) in the top left corner, and choose Trash.
  • Highlight the photo(s) to retrieve.
  • Tap Restore and you're all good.
