    Go back in Astro, find the folder, make it not hidden.

    Easy.

    I'm confused. You made them hidden, but want to fix it, as long as they are not unhidden. My brain hurts.....

    Make sure the pictures that you WANT hidden are in a folder that starts with a period, like

    .Pictures

    And the pictures you want to show up in Albums, in any folder that doesn't start with a period like

    Pictures

    You can use AndroZip or ASTRO or EStrongs or just mount it on your computer via USB cable and drag files around.

    ;)Beat me to it. Sepeate folders for each type. I haven't tried it yet, but this solution was used in a different thread. I deleted all my "hidden" photos when i switched phones.

    I just did this on my phone. On astro my regular pics are in directory DCIM, in a subfolder named "pics". I created a new directory using astro (menu -->new directory) named it ".nudes" I then moved a photo into this directory. Now if i close astro and open albums, all pics are viewable except the one i placed in hidden folder. To view that photo you have to use astro to open it.

    Hope this helps.....

    Ok. You've got me stumped. Maybe start a new folder, not hidden. Put a new pic in it. Then see if it shows in albums.
