    hi im looking for an app to make certain photos private if it did videos as well that would be a plus..i tried photovault but what i dont like about this app is once you make a photo private you cant attach it anywhere in an email or what not

    so is there anything else out there that does this?

    put the files(vids and pics) in a folder, add a txt and rename it to ".nomedia" and that folder will be hidden from the gallery, actually anything with "." infront of it will hide the entire folder.

    PhotoVault. You have to go in and un-hide the pictures to attach them, but it password protects them.

    looks to me like he read yours, you just didnt read his. Go in and un-hide the picture in order to attach. Then "rehide" it. Or just dont take pictures that you would have to hide from a particular person in the first place, thats way easier for me. Your call

    Actually, if you place it in a hidden folder like suggested and then use Astro, you can go to the folder and long press any pic/vid you have there and then choose send.

    I simply send them to a email account for storage and retrieve to send. No real reason to keep them on the phone. If you can't retrieve you can't send anyways.
    Just start a email account for storage purposes, safer than keeping them on your phone.

    This is what I do. Give the main folder a very generic name and make a subfolder with another generic name then store the pictures in that one. No one would ever stumble upon them and as long as the folder name starts with a period it will be hidden from the gallery.

    Just remember that Astro will always stay on the last folder you had open so you need to hit the Astro Home button before leaving the app...

    Nope. Best thing ever is Hide It Pro. It hides pics, Texts, & call logs. The app is even hidden beneath another app. Password protected. If someone finds it, theres another password that enters another app that doesnt actually work. I love this app.
