    1) How do you delete saved "scenes" that you no longer want?

    2) How do you create, edit, delete, rename a photo album?

    Thanks!

    1) Don't have an answer for this because I don't use scenes

    2) You need a file manager app such as Astro to that. To create an album, just simply create a folder on the sd/mem and put your pictures in them. You can also edit, delete photo albums from Astro. Yeah it's unfortunate they don't have those options in the stock photo app.

    1.)

    Press Menu while on your home screen.
    Go to Settings
    Select Personalize
    Select Scenes
    Long Press on the Scene you would like to Delete
    This will allow you to Rename or Delete the scene.

    I've searched high and low, looks like you'll have to do it with Astro. Seems really stupid to not have that function, but oh well I suppose.

    what about changing the "preview" photo of an album? the little thumbnail showing before you choose the album that is. can you change that without astro? or re-arrange photos within the album?

    Astro is a File Manager, not a task killer.

    I can't seem to find any option to do that. It looks like you'll have to do it through Astro. Astro is a just a file manager similar to windows explorer.

    The photo/music app on android is still fairly primitive. That's just the reality. Hopefully, in subsequent versions of android, they'll address those issues.

    I havn't tried this yet but I believe you can also just hook up the phone to your PC and use it as a mass storage device, and rename and create folders that way. This way you dont have to install a 3rd party app. Can anyone confirm?

    Also as a side note: if you want to hide folders, add a period (.) in front of the folder name. I.e if I want to hide my Secret folder, just rename it to .Secret and it will be hidden from your photo albums page

    Astro is not a task killer. It's an application that manages files on your phone - think Explorer on a windows desktop.

    Yes, you can hook up the phone to your PC and use it as a mass storage device - only the internal and external SD cards are visible.

    Ok check this out..

    If you move pics from your SD card and put them in your 100MEDIA file (phone storage for pics), they DO NOT show up on your phone.

    But if you move pics from your 100MEDIA file to your SD storage, they show up fine

    Explain that shit...
