    I'd anyone else getting black and white icons in their gallery? Seems to happen when I screen shot or download a picture from the internet. It's really annoying. I attached a picture of what I mean. Thanks

    Check where those pictures are getting saved to. Most likely it's an app or game downloading image assets but not 'hiding' them from the phone as "No Media", which is why they show up in your phone.

    I've been having the same thing happening lately. It looks like the Pandora P.

    I got a Pandora icon that just appeared out of nowhere. It happened after the update.

    Yeah, I think mine might have been there before the update, not sure.

    In Gallery you can long press the picture to select the file, then tap the three dots at the upper right, tap Details in the menu that is displayed, then scroll down to see the path of the file. If you place a file named .nomedia (contents irrelevant) in the same directory as the picture file, files in that directory should no longer be shown by Android media apps such as Gallery. In my case, this Pandora icon is bmwgroup/com.pandora.android/icon.png, and once I copied a .nomedia file into that directory (using My Files) the picture was no longer shown in Gallery.

    I could do that. How do I create the .nomedia file?

    Some time ago I created a .nomedia file on a PC containing only a few bytes using a text editor like notepad and copied it to where I needed it on my phone. Now, whenever I need a copy in another directory on the phone I use My Files to copy that file to the new directory.

    Ok, so I put the .nomedia file in the album with the Pandora P image and today I noticed that the image is showing up again. Did I do something wrong? It worked for a little bit.
