    No, I'm 18, so I'm of age.
    If you are 18 why is your mom still in control of your phone? Did she buy it, if so let me remind you that it is her phone if not it is your property and to take it would be theft.

    Do what was previously stated by adding a . in front of a folder name. Using astro file manager. Photosafe has a couple of bugs, and on a couple occasions my "hidden" photo's thumbnails were still visable in the phone's gallery.

    I just tried this, but for diffenent reasons ....

    our company email has a .gif in the signature block and my gallery shows every emails sig .gif as a picture in the gallery. I tried putting a file named ".nomedia" in the topmost folder in the email attachements directory reww of the email program (touchdown) but it didnt seem to work. Do you need to put it in EVERY directory or just the root of the nested directory that has the .gifs in it?

    Ok I tried the .nomedia and it dosent really work very well. It works ok if you never want to view the media you are trying to hide, or if you want to reboot the droid after every time you view it. Because it shows up after you look at it until you reboot.

    This is a two step process.

    In Linux (Android), to hide a file or directory, name it with "." before the actual name, ie .hiddenfile

    Then, download the Astro File Manager app.
    With that app, you can change the view settings in the file manager to display/hide hidden directories/files.

    Viola, your files are effectively hidden from anyone who isn't tech savy or doesn't have sufficient time to toy around with your phone.
