    Gallery issues

    Hi.


    Let's say I've got pictures/movies on my phone, that I don't necessarily want others to see. The native gallery application on my N1 shows all media stored on the SD-card, apparently.

    Is it possible to remove elements from the gallery, without deleting them?

    You need to store the pictures/video on your phone under a folder with a period as the first character in the name. For example, call the folder ".private" without the quotes and the gallery won't find them.

    Or just place a empty text file called .nomedia in the folder with the pictures you don't want to show. I did this for Icons was annoying to have the Icons showing in the gallery app. I just copied the .nomedia file from a folder that already had one in it for the Foursquare app

    Is that ".nomedia.txt" or just ".nomedia"

    It is just .nomedia created with a text editor or cheat and look around on your SD card I'm sure one of the programs you have installed has this file in one of the directories that's what I did just copied it to the folder.
