    You can use your file viewer to create folders on the root of your sd card and then drop your pictures in them. After a reboot they will show up in the gallery under the folders section with the name of the folder they were dropped in.

    Do the same process but start the folders name with a period example ".secretpics" and drag any photos you don't want shown in the gallery in to that folder. After a reboot they will be hidden from view but still on the sd.

    You'll be physically dragging them out of the folder they originally appeared in so no they wont show up there. Yes I think it works with videos too. When you need to find them you just go back to your file viewer.
