    tech issue (newbie)

    Hi guys here im starting with questions...

    Suddenly when i was checking my gallery it appeared a new folder called screen shots.

    I dont have a rooted phone and i haven installed any software to do the screenshots.

    This folder contains about 12 image files all black images...

    Im concerned, any clue of why this happened.

    I search for some all ready answered topic but couldnt find any relevant.
    Also im hopping this is the appropiated forum to post this

    Some apps, especially themes for specific applications like browsers or launchers, place images in the Gallery. For example, I have a set of odd images in my gallery as a result of a theme I use for Beautiful Widgets.

    I wouldn't worry about it but if you're concerned you can use a file explorer (like Astro) to find the files and put a file entitled ".nomedia" in the same folder. That should prevent the images from showing up in your gallery. It may, however, have unpredictable effects on whatever app you have that is using those images.
