Default How to not show all folders in Album view!?

I have allot of program folders with grafix in them on my phone, and I don't want to scroll thrue all of them when I'm using Camera -> Album...

I know how to add folders to the Ignored list in registry...

HKLM\Software\HTC\HTCAlbum\Ignored\

but I cant get it to work with folders in the 'Storage card'...

Anyone that can help me?

I have the same problem. Plus, I would like to open a picture in HTC album from file explorer, but it always just opens the default album, not the picture I want to open.
Any help is appreciated!

Yeah, I would be lost without the forum as well!

make a .lnk file with the following:

20#"Windows\htcalbum.exe" -directory:\my documents

if you want another folder just replace my documents with what ever you want

Hello,
the only solution I'm aware of is to set the 'hidden' attribute on the folders which should not be visible in the HTC-Album.

In my experience each individual image has to have the hidden attribute set, rather than the folders.

Hello Dave,
yes, you're right.
I used "Total Commander/CE", and tried to set the hidden-attribute on a folder called "Musik", and selected "Recurse subdirs". Then I checked some subfolders an saw that the folders were not marked "hidden" (that does work with "Total Commander 32" on my PCs). But after a reboot, HTC-Album didn't list any of the subfolders inside the "Musik"-folder. So I thought it was enough to mark the top-folder hidden to hide all subfolders, too.
I just checked the folder again and saw that Total-Commander/CE had marked all files 'hidden'.

So it's not as easy as I thought.
