    I found a method to eliminate certain folders to show up within the Gallery. This is useful for example if you have a bunch of theme folders or mockups, and you really don't these to load within the gallery app. If you add a file zero length named .nomedia to the folder, the contents of this folder are skipped and not added to the gallery.

    A zero length file is a file without any content. An easy way to make the file on cygwin/linux/droid with busybox installed (utilizing terminal prompt), is:
    touch .nomedia

    You can then copy this file to different directories that you would like to exclude.

    Yea a typo on my part --- perhaps a mod could change the title to .nomedia.
    Thanks for viewing the thread.
