Hide Image Folders From Android Photo Apps

If you are like me you have a lot of pictures on your phone, some of which you like to show off and others that fill up your photo lists and make it several times longer.

The obvious answer is to simply hide some of those other images.

Unfortunately on Android that is more difficult than it sounds.

There is no simple setting for individual images or files as a whole that hides them from image viewing applications.

You can however hide folders from photo apps on android by renaming them and putting a “.” at the start of it’s name!

Note: You must set whatever folder this renamed folder is within to “Show hidden files” to find it on folder explorer or similar apps after renaming it!
