why arent my device storage photos popping up in my gallery?

so i recently updated my phone to android 11 and when i went to check my phone gallery, only the pictures from my sd card were there, and when i tried to take a screenshot or download a photo, it would show up on my dcim folder in my device storage but not in my gallery..

at first i thought it might have been just a bug so i tried to transfer some text pics from my device storage to my sd card and only then did they show up on in my gallery, i’ve tried clearing my cache and data on both the gallery app itself and the media storage but none of it seems to work. does anyone know how to fix this?

my phone is a vivo y11 btw

tldr: updated my phone to android 11. pics from sd card pop up in gallery, pics from dcim device storage dont
