    Default hide album from gallery

    So I created a folder in MyFiles where i store all the pictures I don't want in my gallery. The only problem is that I'm unable to hide them. The phone recognizes that there are pictures in the folder and then gives me access to them through gallery. I don't want access to them through gallery, is there a way to make them disappear? I don't want to delete the folder.

    There is an app at Google Play named KeepSafe. It will take them out of the Gallery and hide the pictures within the app. It is password protected so only you can view the files.

    I use Super tool box 10+

    Rename the file where the pictures are that you don't want in your gallery with a . (period) in front of the folder name.
    .pictures

    Then use the File Manager in Super tool box to view that folder when you want to. Works with videos as well.

    Create a file called ".nomedia" and place that in the folder you want to keep hidden.

    hey!
    here is what you can do to hide your photos from gallery.
    1) go to apps
    2) select my files
    3) go to menu
    4) select settings
    5) check the first option "show hidden files"
    now go back
    6) go to images
    7) select the photos you want to hide
    8) tap on the top right corner and select move
    9) go to device storage
    10) select ".hide"
    11) tap on the top right corner "move here"
    now go back to "my files" and
    12) select menu and go to settings
    13) uncheck the "show hidden files" option

    and its done !
    you can now check your gallery, the photos you hid wont be seen.

    Renaming a file or folder with a dot "." before the name will hide it just like shaz post and you can access it using the technique described by plitor. After bought and paid for, even with newer devices out I'm still loving the functionality of my GS3!
