This is how i do it (taken from another post on the N73 forum



"you CAN remove things from the gallery its just a little long winded...

- first attach the phone to your pc (or pop your memory card into a card reader) and locate the image you want to hide.

- Remove the _PAlbTN folder that you can see as a subfolder of the location the image is stored in

- Create a new folder within the memory card and make it hidden (right click, properties and tick the "hidden" check box does the trick in windows)

- move the files you want to hide to the new folder

- go back to gallery and hooray, no more file in gallery !

NOTE: Just making the folder that the file is in a hidden folder, even with the _PAlbTN folder removed, will NOT work but once you've established that the file you want to hide has gone from the folder you can rename the newly created folder to the same name as the folder which the file came from originally. This is perfect if your trying to remove application pictures as if you dont have the file in the location its meant to be in the app wont work but by renaming the new hidden folder to that of the name of the original folder the app will still work AND keep the file hidden"

LOL @ your comments .. take no hostages!!! Good post though for those that don't know how to use a forum search option.


I have a question though, why would you NOT want people to see pics on your phone? I mean, whats the point of actually keeping them hidden on your phone... If its a pic of your girlfriends snatch say for example, arent you better going to the real thing, instead of than looking at a pic of her on a small screen. I don't get it.... UNLESS maybe you got some secret snaps of somone ELSE's girlfriend and you dont want your missis to see it... ok.. that would makre more sense...

Clearly the app images need hiding... I get that.

The answer is porn. The answer to most things is porn

I have another reason. I share my memory card between two devices (N95 and a Windows Mobile device).

I have a number of WM applications stored on the card as well, and the gallery application shows all the images from them (buttons, backgrounds, etc. - they're not _all_ porn based applications ). This causes a similar issue with the media player, which picks up all the sound effects from the applications too. I wish Nokia could let you specify a few paths to use for images and sound effects.

I don't really want to make the directories hidden, but it looks like that hack is the only way.

Well i DID repost it as it seems the original person didn't manage to find it through the search option. But i can take sarcasm with good grace....LOL...

My reason for hiding stuff is also because tomtom puts all the images for the maps and speed camera info in the gallery, also the poi's are there too!

You can also have a zip file somewhere and password protect the files before you add them, then you can delete the files from the gallery but they are still in the zip file
