    the gallery will show all images on the sd card from apps like beatiful widgets etc...so be careful about those pr0n sites. ;) LOL

    it also pulls pictures from your picasa albums too....

    you can disable the picasa pictures too....

    menu > settings > accounts & sync > tap on your email address > uncheck picasa web albums.

    As someone else said it takes pics from everywhere on the sdcard, pretty damn annoying if you ask me.

    I just googled if there was a way to get album art out of the gallery and people said if you name the art file "albumart.jpg" it wont show up in the gallery. Another suggestion was to just delete them from the gallery, which I can confirm works since I just deleted an album art folder from gallery and it still exists outside of the gallery.

    You can also place a file called .nomedia inside a folder and the gallery will skip over it, but other multimedia programs will also. I tried to put this in my music folder and forgot about it, the next day when I opened up mixzing all my music was gone and I freaked out lol

    The .nomedia approach works well IMO. Check your apps to see if they already have options to exclude items from the Gallery.

    .nomedia works well but
    I agree there should be a way to include folders (rather then exclude)

    I'd like to figure out how to force the gallery to open a specific image for the backround, it seems to be random according to what level you are on, but rotates what image it selects ....
