How to Exclude Unwanted Images from Phone Gallery on Android

Gallery on your Android is the place where it shows the photos and videos present on your phone. It also picks up the images from audio albums, video albums and other folders which contains images of any sizes not necessarily being only the photos. For example if I have a complete audio album, it might include covers and the back photos of it. Now these images shows up in my Gallery into separate folder alongside with my pictures. Also the pictures from Picasa Web album are too shown here as well. It’s not a problem but it shows up in an annoying way everytime I visit Gallery. Android system checks SD card for new media files from time to time and these folders are added to the media database and there are displayed in the stock gallery.

Gallery Excluder is a dedicated Android application which removes the folders that you want to exclude its showing in the default Android stock version. This application is quite simple and does the job what it says with the application name. So if you have folders which you don’t wants to show it on your Gallery then install this application, select the folder which you want to show and done.

Gallery Excluder will list all the direct sub directories and directories in a list and if an item gets checked, a .nomedia file is placed in that directory and this makes it not to be seen on the Gallery folder.
