The HTC photo-album takes up an entire screen; is there a way to make a shortcut, or is there a smaller widget or app, that would open up the all-photos view?
The easiest method I've found is to go in via a camera, view the albums, and select "All photos"
Surely there must be a better way?
I'm on the HTC Incredible running Froyo (2.2)
Do you have an app called Gallery? I have it in my list. I would say just drag that on your homescreen and you should be good to go.
