Default How to see hidden folders

Ok, so I created a new folder with the . in front of it so the photos are not showing up in the gallery anymore. However, how can I navigate to them? I can find them on the computer as mass storage but I don't know how to find them simply on the phone.

I appreciate the help!

Hello and welcome to the forums pinkybrain!

There may be a better way but this is the way I know. Download ES File Manager from the play store. After you install it and open it, tap the menu button on your phone. Select settings > file settings > check the box that says ' show hidden files'. You should now be able to see that folder.
