    Is there anyway to create folders for Photos?

    Right now I only have "Camera Pictures", "All Photos" and "All Downloads", but I want to be able to create my own folders etc...

    Hmm. Very good question. I think that the OS treats photos more-or-less like a camera does, and therefore just creates a generic folder (usually ..:\DCIM\100MEDIA) on SD card to store pictures. Downloaded photos are chucked into the X:\download folder with any other downloaded files (pdfs, apks, etc).

    You might consider trying to create a folder from your PC on your SD card within ..:\DCIM\100MEDIA and see if your device picks it up. A similar process of creating folders has worked in terms of adding custom Notification, Alarm, and Ringtones. Good lucK!

    I have the same issue. With the 'not-do-smart' phones this was easy. I suppose in going ahead, some things are left behind?!?

    Bascially you can create a folder anywhere on your sdcard, and place photos in the folder. If a folder has photos in, that folder will appear as a photo gallery in the photos app.

    For instace i have a top level folder named Pictures. Inside here I have many other folders such as "asian", "latino", "brunette".

    Those will appear as galleries in the photos app.
