Default Hidden Folder

I have a certain folder with "only for my eyes" content that I have always had hidden by using a . Before the folder. (.folder) I come from an S3 so I had a microsd card which I sorry miss but I had transferred everything without issue but once I added a new photo too the folder it now shows up in my gallery. Resetting the cache on gallery and reboot has not helped.

Any help you guys can offer?

Try creating a blank file .nomedia inside the folder. Then the Gallery wont read it.

Thanks but that didn't do it unfortunately. A reset of the gallery and a reboot got rid of the new photo. But once I put a new one in there it again appeared in gallery.

^^^ What he said. But still, strange that the .nomedia trick didn't work. Worked on mine. But I haven't added any new pics to the folder, though
