T he photos look like negatives, and the home page changed to a white background. This phone is a LG K20 PLUS Android phone. I went into Settings, then Accessibility, then Screen Inversion, and I tried all of those shortcuts with no difference. Tapping on the home button three times quickly only takes me to the home screen does not change the pictures as they still look like negatives in gallery.

You might have high contrast mode enabled. With all the different flavors of Android around, I can't help you specifically but you might want to look at Settings and see if High Contrast is on in Accessibility or Display. You haven't provided much information about what caused the issue or if you've tried to turn it off and back on again. Speaking of, try turning it off and back on again, along with the things I mentioned earlier.

My LG X charge phone also showed photo content in my gallery and on web pages. I found "color inversion" had been enabled. I turned it off and my black background is white again and photos back to normal.

I have a Pixel 3 that turned my wallpaper picture to negatives and infact all my photos in my album went to negatives. I wasn't to Settings then to Accessibility clicks on that and went down to Color Inversion. Mine was on so I turned it off and my pictures went back to color. No negatives. GOOD Luck

It would help if you can post the exact model of your phone. Likely you have managed to change your display settings. With the iPhone a triple click of the home button used to result in the same thing.

Just go to settings, and select “Accessibility” You’ll see a choice for vision. Select vision, then turn off “Inversion.” That should fix it for you. (Note: this is how it works on my LG phone. I imagine it should work in a similar fashion for your phone, too.)

Depends on your phone and/or o/s. In

Settings

General

Accessibility

Choose to invert color scheme

………

If this isn't correct for your phone/ o/s, you should be able to find where your files are found to fix.

you must have activated “invert color” Simply drag down the notification bar and tap on “invert colors” to deactivate it.

You can also do this via your display settings in SETTINGS

Another note, your toggle buttons may have it on there. Edit them so it's not on there. It can happen when you simply clean your phone.
