    Is there a quick way to refresh the gallery?

    I download pictures from the browser, so it automatically adds them to the gallery.

    But i dont like my downloaded pictures showing up in the gallery so i made a hidden folder within download/ called .pics/.

    after i download pictures i always use a file manager to move them to the hidden folder. but when i check the gallery, it sill shows shows them as being in the download/ folder.

    the only way ive been able to refresh the gallery, to hide the hidden images, is to reboot the fone.

    anyone have any ideas?

    You want to fetch the adapter for the view (Gallery in this case) and call the function that notifies it that the dataset has changed. For example:

    ((BaseAdapter) yourGalleryView.getAdapter()).notifyDataSetChanged()

    There's a widget called SDMount that I use that does this. It'll unmount and remount the SD card, thereby refreshing the Gallery. Works like a charm.

    Is that the exact command? If I want to create a bettercut shortcut to do this, can I just copypasta that?

    Go into your application settings, and clear the data and cache from the gallery. If pics aren't showing up, something there is corrupted. I did that, now everything just pops up like it's supposed to.

    I connected by smart phone to my PC and copied about 20 pictures into the 100ANDRO folder on the phone. Now when go into Gallery, I see the pictures I copied, but I also see about a dozen other albums of pictures that were apparently copied from my PC. When I reconnect to my PC, I still see only the 100... folder in the folders and I don't see any other folder containing pictures. Does anyone have an idea how these picture folders got onto my phone and where they are stored? Thanks.

    Thanks for the name of the app (Gallery Refresh) to refresh all the media on your phone, I've been looking for something to refresh my gallery pics. The app works great and does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Best wishes
