    Hiding certain pictures from gallery?

    I have the Motorola Bravo and I love it. But there's just one thing I'm curious about. Is there a way to make it so certain images or a folder of images doesn't appear in the gallery or under "all images"? There's a folder of images (get your mind outta the gutter, not that) that I want hidden from the gallery when scrolling through just because they aren't my pictures and they don't fit in. Is there a way to do that or maybe an app that does that?

    Placing a text file with the name ".nomedia" in the folder with the photos you don't want should do the trick

    Ah, interesting. That did remove it from the "all folders" section, but the images still show up under "all images."

    Did you try rebooting? Sometimes the gallery is a little slow lol though I suppose its possible the Bravo and the Droid treat image-gathering differently

    Try Pandora it's free and hides them perfectly.

    Old thumbnails still cached?
    Create a new folder, create a .nomedia file in it, and move your pics there.

    I tried rebooting and I tried moving them to a new folder with a .nomedia file. I dont like Pandora, it doesn't change in the actual gallery. Neither of those two work. When I go to the gallery I see the thumbnails, but when I click them it comes up with the broken image picture. I also tried to delete them, but the delete option is faded out when I look at the options.

    The free program "Vaulty Free" allows to choose images to hide from the Gallery. They wont be seen unless you release them. And they can be pass protected.

    There is also an app called photo vault.....I'm just saying.....I am sure you can figure out what it does.
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.

    That's odd because Pandora hides them perfectly for me.
