Android phone is an important tool for many occasions. But, mostly, we use this gadget for taking a picture, right? For example, you are having a vacation and visiting a beautiful place. Now, how can you capture that place’s beauty? It’s simple. Take out your Android phone and snap! You got a great photo for your collection.

Things You Need to Do First
Before we move to the recovering process, firstly, you need to prepare. Don’t worry, it isn’t difficult. You need to do this once you realize that your photo is deleted by accident or other factors.
So, what you need to do? You must stop creating new data. Do not take a new picture, installing an app, downloading a movie, copying files, and even turn on the internet connection. Keep it like what it used to be. Why?
When you lost your photo from your Android phone, it doesn’t mean that it is gone forever. You don’t need to cry and say goodbye to your masterpiece. It’s still in there. It is inside the internal storage of your Android phone.
But, it doesn’t have the previous form. It turns into code. Therefore, you need to use a special method to extract that code and change it back into the photo.
If you create new data, there is a high possibility that your phone system, stupidly, sees the old photo data as useless data. And, it will remove it because it wants to give some space to the new data. If it happens you can cry and say a real goodbye to your masterpiece. So, do not create new file!!!

You are going to install the software on your computer. Then, you can connect your Android phone onto your computer, and voila! You are ready.
Your Android phone will act or read as a storage device. The recovery software then will scan the device and find the recently deleted photos. And, if it is still in good condition, you can easily recover it. It will be like a new photo just freshly taken. So, you don’t need to worry about the resolution quality or others.
