Problems with the pictures gallery

The pics gallery from my Xperia L is showing several repeated photos. I checked the item "folders" of the gallery and found that it is displaying all the folders that contains some kind of image, namely, folders thumbnails and several other, containing irrelevant images are being displayed by the gallery. I checked the google gallery photos there and I can see photos normally. What can be happening? Somebody help me, please. THX!

Re: Problems with the pictures gallery

Check using your file manager app or via a Pc and look for the thumbnails folder and it should start with a dot like .thumbnails - This should render the folder to be ignored and those images won't display - If it does start with a dot then delete the thumbnails folder and then open the album app via Settings - Apps then swipe to all and locate the app and open then tap on Clear cache and data then reboot and test
