Issue when opening photos & videos tab

Recently, the way I see the screen where I can select photos & videos to be sent has changed. In the past I could see 4 images in line, now its 3 and I have empty space to the left and to the right.

I have an Iphone 12 Pro Max 512GB and both, the app and the IOS are up to date.

How can I get back to normal? This is pretty annoying.

Thank you in advance.

Hello, try this:
  • Go into Photos
  • In the top right corner go to settings (...)
  • Here you can either Zoom In, or Zoom Out
  • If you Zoom Out, you will see more photos / videos per line.

That said, when I change it on my iPhone, there isn't a black space on either side...

Thank you for your input, David, but the issue is not with the way photos are displayed in "Photos" app - the issue is how they are displayed when trying to upload in Whats App.
1) Open Whats App
2) Open any conversation
3) Press "+" (on the bottom left)
4) Select "Photo & Video Library"

that is there photos and videos used to be displayed in 4 rows, and not it became 3, with empty space to the left and right
