    How can you hide pictures?

    I have some pics on my phone that I would like to keep to myself. Any ideas?

    photosafe, it's an app.

    If you want it more complicated, you could use astro or some other file manager and rename the extension of the pics so a gallery won't find them. Then rename the ext when you want to view the files.

    Create folder for pics, add empty text file named:

    .nomedia

    Search forums for answers.

    yeah, just make the folder have a period before it .mypics or .justforme or .xxx then all you have to do is go into a file manager and view them when you would like, they wont show up in the gallery

    see thats way to obvious for me, then anyone lookin through your apps knows your hiding some pictures, snatch the astro file manager up in the marketplace and give the period in front of the folder a try, it will work

    Try Photovault, password protected and it's 99 cents in the marketplace. The only downer is that you have to add each picture one by one. It removes the pictures from the gallery so no one can see them.
