    Did they seriously not include a way to "hide" folders that you don't want showing up in albums?

    For example, it just searched my SD card and came up with an "icons" folder that contains various program icons.

    Is there seriously no way to tell it not to appear in HTC album? On windows mobile we had to resort to registry edits to correct this, but I'm afraid we can't do that on android...

    Also, is there serious no subfolders? So I can't have something like:

    Photographs -> Family -> Pets

    This seems quite illogical....

    You can put a "." in front of the folder name to hide it - but this hides it from more than just albums.

    e.g. : .pron

    This.

    Astro file manager is an app that let's you create folders and move pics from folder to folder. Camera pics are in the DCIM folder.

    You can place a text file named .nomedia in the folder and the phone will not pull it up. (also works for folders containing ringtones, to keep out of music player).

    Thanks! Should the text file just be blank?

    That's excellent news! Any idea if this will miss up applications that access those folders, such as PicSay?
