One of my biggest problems when using the My Gallery app is that as soon as I get to a set of pictures and I hand my phone to people so they can look at it it locks almost immediately.  I want it to lock immediately but when I'm showing people pictures I would like it to stay open indefinitely so they can scroll through the photos. However I then forget to reset my settings

@rootstak112358 I would guess that they are accidentally clicking the power button. 

If someone is actively scrolling through the gallery, the phone won't lock. Unless the side button is clicked.

You could set your gallery to keep the screen on with good lock-routines then just be careful if you leave your gallery open because it could drain your battery or if you wanted you could add a widget to easily turn it on/off. This will keep your screen on while the gallery is open unless you leave the app or press the power button.
