    I am trying to find a way to categorize photos without being thumbnails in gallery... photo-hiding is fine, however I like to swipe through photos in one group (which you can do in the oem gallery...

    Astro looks like any other file manager (I use ES File)... an I missing something? I went to market and read description and comments - I dont see why this would hide photos unlike other file managers?...

    I've searched the forum (and the internet) - and havent found a decent solution to photo management... I reviewed all the apps mentioned in this thread: http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...ding-apps.html and none seem stellar (all less then worthy actually)...

    Anyone have suggestions? It's odd that we can just create a folder, put pics int here and browse through them (without it being a group of thumbnails that are visible in the gallery)...

    and now the correct answer.... the quick way..... YES

    here's how:

    1. Download "astro" from Android markets.
    2. Open astro
    3. Press menu. Press "new directory"
    4. In "enter new name", name anything starting from ".", for example ".photos", or ".videos", and press create.
    5. Mount your nexus one to computer
    6. Open your new "dot...." file and you put whatever you wanna out. The files put in this folder will not be detected by nexus one gallery/picture viewer!! Hurrah!!!

    To view your photos or videos, open astro, open "dot...." folder and watch all the videos and see all the photos.

    optionally, you can download yxflash from the market and play your media through it.
    Sorry but what does "mount your nexus one to computer" mean? I'm obviously not tech savvy. You mean usb?

    Yes to the above

    you can also copy the "NoMedia" file (0kb) from any other folder to the one you want to hide> Gallery will overlook that folder> voila it's gone!

    I've found a useful app called Pandora by "Since2006" it looks like a golden dropbox icon

    Pandora is good. I am using it too. It can even hide videos. But you can use Astro, ou may locate the file in Pandora folder but with different format which your N1 cant read, and that's "hiding" saying in another way.

    Hmmm, thought to self, should I answer this?.....

    (Yes, by usb is the correct useful answer).
