My DroidX shows all my album covers as if they were photos, any ideas on how I can hide them ? I really only want to see my pictures as photos...
The '.' Method. Basically you place the pictures you want to hide in a folder and put a . in front of the folder name and the gallery shouldn't show those photos. There are also applications on the market that hide things for you.
You can also probably just put a file called ".nomedia" in the folder where you don't want images to show up and they will not. Still can find them with a file browser but not in the gallery. I have a Moto Droid1 so it may not work the same, but I am pretty sure it will.
Yeah I use the "." method. I just name the folder whatever I want with a period in front of it. Keeps out the nosey co-workers that wants to look at my pix to see any from my gf that aren't ment for public LOL. Now if only I could put a pw lock on the file manager itself, then i dont have to worry about the super smart nosey people that goes through the files instead of the gallery.
I'll try this - my concern is that the picture stays available as the 'album cover' when looking at/for music, and that the music in the folder with the album cover picture is still visible.
I'll let you know how that goes...
Can anyone recommend a good app for hiding them?
Still don't know that photovault will help - I believe that using it will also hide the photo/album cover from being available as an album cover in music.
Is there a way to limit the folders that PICTURES looks in for photos/JPGs - so that I could tell it not to look for pictures in the MUSIC folder?
