My gallery is showing icons and junk.

I have a galaxy s5. My gallery folders are well organized, but one day all kinds of folders appeared with a lot of logos from apps, all kinds of icons, hundreds! , album covers from my music. Why is all if that showing now and how can I get it back to normal? I tried everything on the settings.

An app that has media files that should only be seen by that app should put it in a folder with a file named .nomedia, so the media scanner doesn't scan that folder (and Gallery and other apps won't show them). Not all "developers" are as competent as others.
