    Default Any way to hide albums in the gallery?

    So I use the UCCW custom clock widget, and the skins used to make a clock use .png files and such. Now my gallery made up a bunch of albums from the folders containing those picture files, and now my gallery is all cluttered. Is there any way to hide those albums from the gallery so I can unclutter it?

    Thanks!

    I use background images in go SMS.
    I've always used the "." method. When I use that method for the background images go sms can't find them.

    I have always used this method for hiding media files:

    1. Create a blank text file
    2. Name it .nomedia - you have to have be able to see extensions in your operating system so you can remove the .txt extension.
    3. Place a copy of the file in any folder that has images in it that you don't want to see in the Gallery.
    I personally keep a copy of this file on my Dropbox folder so I can copy it any time I need it. I believe that this will also hide audio files from apps as well.

    You can download the file from my dropbox if you wish ...

    +1 for QuickPic. It's faster too, especially if you have a Moto device.

    Quickpic is the answer unless you want to have Picasa albums shown. The problem with .nomedia text files, is that it addition to hiding the album covers, it hides the music too . Wish the nomedia files were editable to allow extensions that were in the file for example. Ah well.

    Quickpic is better in all respects, except for the Picasa thing.

    I tried the .nomedia file but that didn't seem to work. I will try QuickPic tho.

    Thanks everyone!

    LOVE in the app list and drawer it's called gallery, when you open it, it takes you to the regular picture gallery. Open the vault and you'll find all your vaulted photos, movies, files and I think texts.

    You have to clear cache and data for the gallery and restart. It should work then.

    If you turn off photo sync in ACCOUNTS-SYNC it might. That is actually the reason I use the Gallery instead of Quickpic... so I CAN see them. Try out Quickpic... you will not be disappointed.

    To make a folder hidden simply put a period in front of it... for example : /folder make it /.folder

    Your main problem is that you are using Android "Gallery". Throw it away- disable it completely, and install QuickPic. It is the *ONLY* gallery type option that doesn't throw all your media together into a single level of directories as if the user is a total *****. Imagine that- a gallery that understands an preserves directory structures!

    And the reason it does that, is because I begged the author for it for six months, and he came through with it! (Of course, I sent him a donation, too).

    So I started using QuickPic and I noticed when it plays videos it doesn't use the whole screen like Gallery does.
