    Is there anyway of making the Gallery look a little more tidy?

    Every photo I have, be it received, downloaded, bluetoothed, or taken. It seems to create several different folders. I can't seem to find a way of merging these folders to make it look neater & some folders cannot be deleted?

    Are there any apps to help me, or is it one of those annoying Android things?

    Connect your device to your computer in disk drive mode, then sort them into folders there...

    I use EStrongs File Explorer to create the folders und move the pictures in the new folders.
    As gallery app I use JustPictures.
    JustPictures shows only the folders you wish to see :)

    Once its sorted, will have to sort again, when more photos are downloaded, blue-toothed, etc, etc?

    Just move the new pictures with file manager (Estrongs File Explorer) in it's folders.

    To help the stock gallery to index with the new pictures, I have to start the app SDrescan.
    JustPictures has a button for indexing new folders and new pictutes.

    I hope you meant that :)
