    Default Gallery/File question

    Hi All,
    Just got the Galaxy S5 and wondering if there is a way to save video and pic files that won't show up in the gallery? I had an old android phone that let me move the gallery file to another file that did not get populated to the gallery.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Welcome to Android Central! You could use a file manager app to move your downloaded photo or video to another folder of your choice, and then use that file manager to create a blank file called ".nomedia" in that folder. Make sure there is a period in front of nomedia. This will tell the system's Media Scanner to ignore that folder when looking for media to populate the gallery.
