    I was just wondering if there was a way to protect certain pictures from showing up in the gallery while still allowing unprotected access to the others.

    Thanks, but for the reviews it looks like it hasn't been working the greatest lately. Have you had any problems with it?

    Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Photo Vault works well on the iphone/touch, but I'm not sure how well it works on Android . . . what's to stop someone from opening Astro and viewing/copying the photos from there?

    @mikeman, works well for me. As kevinbakon pointed out you can see the files in Astro, but hiding the file changes the extension so you can't view/open it.

    Not a perfect solution, but OK to hide stuff from casual view.

    Another thing you can do is go into astro and place a period (.) in FRONT of the folder name where the photos you want to hide are....this will hide them from the gallery

    example : thefolder

    to : .thefolder

    how bout

    Photos > Menu > Settings > Default Albums > uncheck unwanted albums

    this might work better if you go in and make another folder?
    or assign those photos you want to be hidden as favorites then uncheck favorites?

    What is the easiest way to move a photo to a different directory. I just managed this via Astro and placing them in \emmc\.folder and this removed them from the gallery. I was just wondering if there was a less manual way.
