QuickPic for Android allows for folder hiding (and may be set with a password to unhide) and to exclude folders from showing either in unhide or hide mode. :)
You bought an Android device to separate yourself from Google?
Download a different gallery. Perhaps QuickPic?
Download a different calendar. Perhaps Jorte?
I am confused as to what experience you were looking for.
Quickpic and/or the internal viewer of the file browser Solid Explorer.
Having the same issue. It seems it has gotten worse since Pie. Samsung really needs to address this.
Edit: I just installed another gallery app, such as QuickPic: [link]
And I found those "unsaved" pics in this gallery app!
Download quickpic, long press on album you want to hide, press three vertical dots in upper right corner, press hide. Enjoy secret nudes when needed.
Use Quickpic, it's pretty light, good gif support, you can hide folders, pretty much covers everything for a good gallery app.
Just don't forget to disable background data
Quick Pic has a lot of security features built in. Also it's the only app I've found to load my massive picture collection in seconds. So there's that.
Check out QuickPic Gallery. It has a private mode.
There's also A+ Gallery Photos & Videos. It can also hide Albums.
Quickpic has always been my favorite. But it was recently purchased by a company with a bad reputation. People are fleeing the app, and I haven't heard of a decent alternative. I'm currently using Quickpic on my 6p and it works fine so far.
Try using a different Gallery app, such as QuickPic or set up your phone to use Google Photos. This sounds like a limitation of the Gallery app you're using instead of an Android issue.
If you have QuickPic you can manually makes folders and put photos in them and make them private. And can be password locked
Another app for putting videos and pics in a vault is AppLock
You simply need to open it with an app that supports playing GIFs. If the stock gallery app doesn't work for some reason you can download another app - such as QuickPic. Then just open the GIF and choose to open it with QuickPic.
Yup, as spark said, it's the motion photos that screw up the first pic.
Weird thing is, those photos you think you lost may be still available if you use a different gallery app. Use [link]
I've been using it for a while now, but I haven't had any issues with it. I got it from the play store. Here's the link.
I just searched it via VPN, seems like it might not be available in some countries.
Same here except it's 129 memes. I think it's from all the photos that are backed up on Google Photos. The algorithms/"AI" scans everything and recognizes certain features of the image. Open Photos app, click albums at the bottom, then look at the top of screen, all nice and neatly organized into categories, people, places, etc. Cool but also scary in regards to "privacy". I've been using QuickPic as my primary photo gallery on every phone, since 11' or 12', app was released in 10'. It will even show typically hidden from user images such as files downloaded/attached from random apps, like ads and stupid miscellaneous stuff. Good to be able to see and delete otherwise hidden files, albeit miniscule data size. Some come back though.
I've always just used QuickPic for better file management on photos. I just move them out of the folders using this app. But it's really annoying that there isn't an option of where to save photos in the google camera app.
I use Quickpic, gallery app ([link]) and if you go to a folder that you don't want to see listed, use the "hide" option and it will place a nomedia file into the directory for you.
Not an ideal solution I know. But QuicPic allows you to exclude folders and is a nice gallery app. In fact it lets you just include a single folder if you'd like. Free and ad-free. My go-to gallery app. Owned by CheetahMobile though if that bothers you.
My next choice is LeafPic, which looks even more promising but is still in beta. Can do the things I mentioned before except it doesn't allow you to choose a single folder to include, you have to choose all folder you wish to exclude.
Download QuickPic and forget about the sony album. QuickPic is easily the best photo soft for Android, I did that for my Z3.
I would recommend Quickpic let's you create new folders inside of the app and move all images from one folder to another inside the app. Disable the cloud storage tho.
And if you want a good file manager I would recommend ASUS File Manager and try move everything from internal to SD card
the app left the beta yesterday boy. But nevermind, here's an awesome app. It has 50M downloads!!! you must get it :) quickpic
So I saw a suggestion that says to use the app "quickpic" as that allows you to exclude folders. I tried it and it works but I don't like the look of it. Since they were bought by cheetah mobile you can expect things to go downhill with ads and other nonsense. I need an option that allows me to "fix" the google photo app or even an xposed module perhaps.
See if there is a setting in your Gallery app to gain access to your SD card. I'm guessing that the app is the same one that came with your phone and is programmed to only look at that one folder in particular. If that's the case, then you will most likely need a different app to view those pictures, such as QuickPic or Google Photos.
they have a cloud backup service...
On top of this, our CM Cloud function offers speedy back up and restoration for photos - your photos are stored on industry leading Amazon servers to help you preserve all your precious memories securely.
you should be able to log in and all your pics will be restored to the new device. but I wouldn't delete anything from the OPO yet..
most everything else is backed up via your google account. Settings, etc. sms/mms isn't, but there are other apps for that.
2013 X got the same gallery apparently. Incredibly it's worse that the previous version. I moved to QuickPic. Very nice.
Is it greyed out when you have no other gallery app installed? I set QuickPic to default for the simplicity; it allows sharing, deleting, and more both in-app or when browsing from Camera recents.
When you restarted your phone, the reason why you saw images in Google Photos is because it's pulling those images from Google's servers; you're seeing the image backups that were previously uploaded. As such, you're going to need network connection in order to pull up the full-sized images from Google's servers, but the thumbnails are locally stored on your device. Google Photos doesn't show you all the images stored on your device, but rather all the images to be uploaded/already uploaded to the servers.
If you have a need to view the images when not connected to a network, you're going to have to keep the images on your phone (good thinking on your part to make copies from them on your SD card, although pulling them from Google Photos isn't too hard either) and use a different application to view the locally-stored image files, usually a Gallery app, such as QuickPic or the stock Gallery app that came with your phone. At this point, you can simply insert your SD card or copy the pictures from the card onto your phone and you should see them in your Gallery app and since you made a copy of all those pictures before restarting, they should still be in date-taken order when you view them in the Gallery.
What are you using to view the gifs? Not all apps have the ability to view a .gif properly, although I know that QuickPic does.
Try QuickPic and see if you see the folder on that. I never used G+ Photos so don't know much about it. In QuickPic, there should be another folder 100MEDIA apart from Camera.
Do you have a file explorer like ES File Explorer ?
If yes look for the above mentioned path in the file explorer.
You can use QuickPic and the "Google Photos" part of the G+ app to set a full scale/non scrolling wallpaper. Just open the wallpaper in QuickPic, and when setting as the wallpaper from the overflow menu, tap this icon. For some reason it will open the cropper when setting using other gallery apps, but QuickPic doesn't somehow.
Go to Google Play. Search for QuickPic gallery app. When you use this as an alternative, you can long press a picture or album, then hide. It will also hide it system wide in any other gallery app. There is an option to password protect the hidden content.
Or you can just click the link if I posted it correctly! ;-)
What file formats are they? WebM? I also imagine you are trying to view these with the default Gallery app that comes with the S3/Samsung?
I'd recommend taking a look at an alternative gallery app called QuickPic (one of the most popular in the Play Store) and see if you have any problems view them with that.
The G+ Fotos app? Or a Manufacturer Gallery? Do they show up if you use another Gallery app like Quickpic? Can you find them through a file explorer?
If it's through G+ Fotos, maybe they are pictures somehow shared with you through hangouts, g+ or drive?
You will have to give a bit more information, did you install, or update, any new apps recently?

<strong>QuickPic Gallery</strong> - Free - Rating: 84/100 - Search for 'Wally' on the <strong>Play Store</strong> ------ ^Source ^Code ^| ^Feedback/Bug ^report.
Amazing alt to viewing your photos.
For the gallery option I would try out Quickpic. I've been using it for years and it allows you to exclude folders to show.
As for the automation, I know that Tasker is very detailed in what it can do but for me personally I like Llama.
Basically you teach it areas (based on cell towers) and set it to do specific things when you're in that location. It's not great if you have two places very close to each other but for places like home and work it's great. I've had it on every phone I've had and it's still running well even though I doubt there's been any development for it.
Quickpic > settings > Cloud Backup.
Mine syncs specific folders to Google Drive.
Best gallery app i've ever used.
Quick Pic is what I'm using currently
I use QuickPic for quite a while now. Maybe it suits you.
Here you go [link]
I did the exact same switch.
I was also unsure of the process, but decided to go for it anyway. I spent two days neglecting my gf (she still loves me) to set it up from scratch. I transferred all my contacts first, individually, name by name. Then I transferred my music song by song. Then I did the pictures the same way.
Android uses a file system. So you can categorize and organize the phone just like a flash drive. I use quickpic for pictures, and this for file browsing/management. For the apps you want locked down I use this and for SMS I use Chomp.
SO MUCH CUSTOMIZATION. Your mind will be blown. Then that begs the question of how to easily transfer pictures between different phones. My gf's mom uses iphone, so I installed this which is the coolest thing I've ever seen. Then of course there's this for quick and easy file transfer. And when you want to throw something to your phone I use this that made the transition very easy.
A couple other favs that I like are this and then this cause now you can control the tv with your phone.
Have fun! probably the best decision you've ever made. I love this gs6, I'm never touching ios again.
Quickpic is nice.
not really. If you have an USB OTG cable you can connect the theta in USB mass storage mode, use any file manager to transfer the files then use quickpic to view the files in compass mode or small planet in little-planet view
QuickPic has an option to enable this.
I've always liked QuickPic but lately I've just been using Google Photos and haven't really needed anything else
Quickpic will do it. Go to cloud backup but backup to your NAS rather than to the other cloud things you have added.
For hidden photo use Quickpic For hidden files use ES Explorer
Just gonna say NTA and leave this here. Hide all the folders you want and remove your default gallery.
QuickPic also had this 'max brightness' feature. (Seems 3rd party apps understand this...)
Use an app called QuickPic, you can mark folders as hidden and they don't show up anywhere in your phone
I was using this on my Honor 6x and now on my Essential
QuickPic - Photo Gallery with Google Drive Support
You dont need Tasker for this
Tap on the screen shot and open it via Quick pic app([link]) and then move the file to where you want.
QuickPic is dope, tho.
But it doesn't push heavily Cheetah Mobile brand there.
I just started using Quick Pic and I like it so far!
Is QuickPic-Galerie still safe?
My go to choice for photos
A great app for reading stuff out loud
My personal favorite for a remote - only one I've found that actually works
A great way to set up volume profiles, message me if you have problems it was a tad tricky to figure this one out at first
For those who want to instantly switch between two apps without using that silly card style app switcher
Because some of my apps don't turn on the screen, I've got this to make sure it comes on ALL the time
QuickPic Gallery is the best pictures gallery out there, a ton of options and customization
I use quickpics ([link]), it has a nice backup feature. You can also choose wifi/charging options too.
It organize all your Photos like a normal stock Gallery.
But you also can hide Folders etc. just give it a try. :)
QuickPic Play store link.
It was considered best in Android 2/4 era and i still use it. Old habit die hard.
They used to cooperate with Cheetah Mobile but seems ot abandon it recently.
There is also a mod based upon 4.5.2 version with C.M. code and something else removed.
Gallery & Google photos: Just get QuickPic. You can hide any folder from the app. Not sure whether this is what you meant by hidden albums.
1080p @ 60Hz and > 120fps slo-mo: What are you expecting? This is a smartphone, not a dedicated special-purpose video camera. It does 2160p @ 30Hz. That's good enough for showing off pointless specifications that 99% of users would not see as a CON.
Quickpic is the one that comes to mind. I'm amazed that it's only 2.2 mb. I don't know what sorcery the developer has done to keep the size that low. It's a great app and has completely replaced the stock gallery app on my phone.
I like Quickpic - [link]
Quickpic all the way! Using it daily since the gingerbread days [link]
1 - Do not use Google Photos as your default gallery app. It is a confusing mess. I love Google Photos, but the UI (both for their app and the web interface) needs a lot of work. It's not intuitive at all.
2 - Install Quickpic and use that as your main gallery. You can multi-select images and "share" them with Gmail, which will auto-attach them. It is super easy to do.
I use quickpic, but there are at least 4 or 5 really good 3rd party Gallery apps on Android. They are all better than Google's native Photos app. Google doesn't like organizing by album...they want you to use search functions to find images.
Try quick pik
For Priv users, I recommend QuickPic Gallery. Of course, there are plenty of others, but I prefer using Cheetah Mobile (CM) apps due to the limited number of permissions. They really only request access to what is needed for the app to do what it's intended to do.
Edit: Actually, I was wrong. I saw the logo and thought it was the logo for Picasa, but it's not, it's the one for Google Photos - which is what the Priv has.
