Many apps create folders on the sd-card and drop their stuff there. Often, they place images as well. Now that Android checks the sd-card for new media from time to time, these folders will be added to the media database and displayed in the stock Gallery app.
Gallery Excluder lists all direct subfolders of '/sdcard' respectively '/mnt/sdcard' and displays them in a list. If an item/folder gets checked there is a '.nomedia' placed in that folder. If the folder gets unchecked the '.nomedia' is removed.
Since it can take a while to have the gallery update you can force a manual update via options menu.
So please let me know if such a tool can be helpful for anyone except myself.
Now with subdirectories. Downside: there is no feedback when you selected a subfolder for its parent. E.g. when you excluded /mnt/sdcard/folder/subfolder/ you can't recognize it when viewing folder /mnt/sdcard/ (folder won't be selected).
If you feel like supporting my work click some ads. This is an experiment for me to figure if ads work. Thank you.
- long press an item to dive into the subfolder
- back takes you up one level
- select all/none
