    From a forum suggestions I put a "." in front of a folder name I had saved in my dcim folder in a attempt to hide photos from the photo gallery. Now I don't see the photos in the folder I created or the Gallery. Any idea where they were hidden too?

    open a terminal and su to root. Go to the directory where the gallery folder is that you put the period in front of and then issue the following command.

    mv .hiddenfolder/ hiddenfolder/


    where hiddenfolder is the name of the folder in the DCIM folder.
