    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.

    Hi

    with "Ctrl Folder" you can organize right inside from the comfort of Gallery
