    Gallery Question

    When I open up my gallery it shows all of the available beautiful widget preview pictures, like 300? Any idea how to not allow these to show up in my gallery and just show my own pictures? Like wallpapers, camera shots and other pictures. I know I can click just camera roll but I don't want all of these previews showing up in my gallery.

    Thanks for any advice or suggestions.

    Put a .nomedia file in those folders.
    I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.

    On my phone now, so can't go into great detail. Google search for .nomedia

    Using a file explorer do a search for ".nomedia" select the file and copy(there will be numerous ones in different folders, any one will do). Find the folder with the image files for Beautiful Widgets and paste the file into the folder. You can do this for any local file that shows up in your gallery that you don't want. A reboot my be necessary afterwards. Hope this helps.
    Actually I think the folder you need to drop the ".nomedia" file into should be /sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/cache.

    I apologize for my laziness I should have googled that in the first place. Did some research, tried the .nomedia file and even tried this https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result from the market. Still no luck, they are still showing up under the gallery...

    It can take a while to update. Did you try a reboot to force it?

    Did you try the copy /paste method I suggested? It works if you put it in the right place I promise. One other thing you could try is clear the cache in Beautiful Widgets or go to the folder I mentioned earlier "/sdcard/data/beautifulwidgets/cache" and delete them manually then paste in the ".nomedia".

    Cool

    Ok... I just fixed this on my Droid 3.

    Copy DCIM folder to computer. Delete DCIM folder from phone.

    Go to manage Applications and clear Gallery's cache.

    Find your .nomedia file... I got mine in the Games folder from the Nova demo data folder.

    Paste the .nomedia folder into each individual skin's folder. So go into Data/Beautifulwidgets/skins and copy into each folder in there... Then go into Data/Beautifulwidgets/wskins and do the same... then bskins... scskins and so on.

    I noticed that some downloaded skins already had a .nomedia file there so I skipped it and moved on to the next skin's folder until I pasted a .nomedia file into every skin folder in the BeautifulWidgets folder.

    open Gallery and delete everything that is in there. I had like 504 generic photo icons from the skin jpegs. I selected multiple and then deleted.

    copy DCIM folder back to phone. open Gallery and you should be all set... At least I was...
