    If you delete it it'll be gone. I dont think you can customize what is/isn't shown there, but I could be wrong. Perhaps an alternate application?

    True dat. I did it for my Beautiful Widgets themes directory and it took those files out of the Gallery.

    I made a text file and named it no.media and placed it in a music album directory that contains album art. I wen to the gallery app and it still shows that album as a folder with pictures in it.

    Oooh. Yes, no.media file details. :icon_ banana:

    All of the numbers for Beautiful widgets along with album art is clogging up my Gallery as well!:mad:

    Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't putting .nomedia in your music folder where your album art is getting pulled in from keep yoru music player from seeing your music files? I was under the impression that .nomedia affects both the gallery and the music player.

    i think its easier just to use a ID tagging program and embed the art in the files themselves.

    Thanks. I have been looking for the answer to this one for ages. I cannot make a .nomedia file (windows does not allow it) so I copied and pasted the one in Beuatiful Widgets folder
