    My moto asks if I want to create files for every few photos. It also stores random pictures from everywhere. For example, screenshots will mix in with game shots. I never photo nor record my games.

    Welcome to Android Central! Apps and adware can cache images in their own directories. If these directories don't have a file called .nomedia added to them, then those images will also show up in your gallery app as well. You can use a file manager app to add a blank text file titled ".nomedia" (with the leading period but without the quotes) in the directory where those images are stored, and that should hide them from the gallery app.
