Thumbs up Images and Videos And Icons

Well.. that was a cool trick....

I installed F1 Timing, which has loads of images in the program...

When i browse by photo album, they are all included...

SO.....

I creaded a file in the root of the folder called .nomedia
now the images/video data in that folder and subdirectories are not included in the gallery....

Cool....

Looks cool enough for the Tips and Tricks sub-forum, ajwconsult.

You are saying that the media now defaults to that new folder, and now you can move pics from there to Gallery if/when you want to?

hello,

no me saying that by creating that file in a directory it will not include any picture or music or videos if found within the gallery

i found it a pain when all the directories are searched by GALLERY to include all pics found, now only looks in the folder i want it to look in by either not having the .nomedia file in there or having it in there..

How do you create a .nomedia file?

Windows doesn't like creating files with no file names.

You need a Linux - based OS like, um, ooh I dunno - Android?

I use ES File Explorer from the Marketplace. Open it up, navigate to the required location for the file then:
Menu -> New -> File, name it .nomedia, and you're done!
