    Hi all,

    I'm just wondering why various new albums keep appearing in my gallery and how I can stop this. I'm guessing that apps have access to it, but it's getting quite frustrating.

    Anyone have any ladvice?
    Thanks,
    Tom

    Welcome to Android Central! Do these new albums contain images associated with apps? The Gallery will show images from any folder on your device that doesn't have a ".nomedia" file in it. ".nomedia" instructs the system's Media Scanner to ignore the folder when looking for photos, music, or videos to populate the respective databases. You can use most file manager apps (like ES File Explorer) to create a blank file called ".nomedia".
