Default Gallery-Album art shows up.

Alright, my problem is that in my gallery every picture from every CD is in there. Is there a way to get the gallery to recognize specific folders or am I doomed to have a cluttered gallery with hundreds of CD covers in it? I just want it to recognize my normal pictures folder, and and 2 other photo apps I have folders. Although I can't figure it out to save my life. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like when you add music to your phone you are leaving the album cover JPEG in the folder. Delete all those and download cover art downloader from the market.

Here is a way - go into each album directory and rename the album cover image to albumart.jpg.

The next time the Gallery application scans this directory it will remove this cover image from its list, but the music player will continue to display the cover image when the album is played.

Let me know how it works out for you

okay. this is important and works. Go to your file manager. Where ever there is a picture that you don't want to show up in the gallery, rename the file but keep the original name, just add a period to it. For example AlbumArt ..rename to .AlbumArt and that will hide all files you don't want showing under gallery or even under your file manager. If you go to your file manager, hit settings, and hit show hidden files..you'd be surprised how many hidden files there are from applications.

RocketPlayer now supports ignoring the .nomedia file at the top of the music folder tree. This helps resolve the Gallery problem. Glad they added this feature. I'm not associated with RP except as a happy user.

AT&T introduced the world to a 4.5 inch near-beast. With a different processor here and more RAM there, this could have been their Galaxy S II. Instead, it's closer to a Galaxy S phone than anything. It has a beefier 1.2GHz single-core Humm... Read More
