    Is there any good app to organise and even mayby hide pictures from the regular gallery?

    I would like to have several folders, saving pictures for different reasons/different projects etc.

    And some I might want to hide from the "regular" "Photo" app....

    Check out PhotoVault - used this for a while - it works great.

    You can set a password and it leaves no trace of the hidden pics on your phone :)

    Use Astro file manager. Put the photos you want "hidden" in their own directory and rename it with a "." in front of it. Android then sees this as a system file and won't show the images in the Photo/Gallery app.


    SDcard\Photos\set1 <- visible
    SDcard\Photos\set2 <- visible
    SDcard\Photos\set2\cropped <- visible
    SDcard\Photos\.private\set4 <- not visible
    SDcard\Photos\.private\set5 <- not visible

    And if I want to view the pics that are hidden?

    In "Photos" will pics in Set1 be shown as an own folder and "Set2" as another folder etc?

    Astro is a free app, I don't know why you can't find it. Just do a market search for "File manager". You'll need to view the hidden pics from the file manager. In "Photos", yes Set1 and and Set2 will be in their own folders.
