Viewer Carl sent in the following: Can I undelete a photo on my smartphone?

If you accidentally delete a photo or video you can recover it but the methods are quite different between Android and iOS smartphones.

iOS users have 30 days to recover a deleted photo or video. From the photos app, tap Albums then Recently Deleted. The photos and videos show the days remaining before they are permanently removed. Tap Select then choose the photos you wish to restore. Tap Recover. It is quick & easy.

Android users need to install an app such as Dumpster. But you will need to install the app prior to deleting the image or video.
