    Default Re: weird media

    Welcome to Android Central! This isn't unusual. An app may create a folder with a bunch of images it uses, but those images may also appear in the Gallery app as well. One way you can prevent that from happening is to use any file manager app (like ES File Explorer) to create a blank text file titled ".nomedia" in the folder you want to hide from the Gallery. But I don't know if this would affect the functioning of the app at all. If it does, you could always delete the .nomedia file.

    After creating the .nomedia file, you might have to go to Settings>Apps>All​, select Gallery, and Clear Cache and Clear Data. The next time you open Gallery, it will repopulate its database with images from folders that don't have a .nomedia file.
