    Im wondering if there is a pics app that will cover all my needs on my Desire. Currently running both the Nexus1 Gallery and the default HTC Photos. Both have good and bad points.

    HTC Photos
    Good:
    -Only shows my pics, not the album art and ebook art stored elsewhere on the sd
    -Has a simple Facebook pics option
    -Uploads direct to Picasa/FB,etc
    Bad:
    -No Picasa albums viewable (most of my pics are on Picasa)
    -Cant multi tag pics (needed for doing bulk uploads/shares)

    Nexus1 Gallery
    Good:
    -Beautiful interface!
    -Shows Picasa galleries automatically
    -Has multi-tag
    -Uploads direct to Picasa/FB,etc
    Bad:
    -Shows EVERYTHING on my sd card, and has no option to remove pics/directories
    -No basic editing options (crop,rotate,etc as the HTC app has)
    -No Facebook albums display

    Does anyone have suggestions for an app that will give me my cake and opportunity to eat it?

    You can do something about that. Create a file, name it .nomedia and drop it into the folder with media that you don't want to show up on the gallery. Cumbersome, but doable.

    Eh... huh? The N1 3D gallery does let you crop and rotate.

    Ooops, my bad. Ok, so you can edit with it :)

    Thanks for the .noidea tip, works well. It seems it covers subdirectories as well
