I'm sorry, to clarify.....I'm using, if all my pics are in folder named "pictures" and there are 5 of them I want hidden.......I create a subfolder within "pictures"...... name it ".nomedia.......put the 5 pics inside ".nomedia".......and then when I look in gallery......I still see my "pictures" but not the hidden 5?

Is this right or am I being really dim? can be honest lol
Many thanks
Make a new folder, doesn't have to be inside pictures, but it can be. It doesn't matter what the folder is named.

Then open that folder and create a file inside that folder. The FILE needs to be named ".nomedia" not the folder. Any folder that you put a FILE in named .nomedia nothing will show up in your gallery
