    You will need to make a " .nomedia " text file, put it into a folder on your BlackBerry's SD card, then move the files you do not want to be visible in any of your media apps.
    1. On a PC, right click on the desktop and select a New / Text Document.
    2. Rename the text file " .nomedia " (DOT nomedia) without the quotes. You do not need to add any text to the text file, it's just the file name that does the trick.
    3. Connect your Blackberry to the PC.
    4. Navigate to the SD card through Explorer.
    5. Right click and select New / Folder, this will create a folder called New Folder on your SD card. You can rename it to whatever you want.
    6. Open that folder and copy the .nomedia file into it.
    7. Now move all the media files you want to be hidden from within the various media apps into that folder.

    This will cause the various media apps to ignore the contents of the folder and not cache thumbnails to display what is in the folder within those apps.
    You can still access those files and view/play them with the File Manger apps, but they will not show as thumbnails in the Photos, Gallery, Music, or Videos apps.

    It works perfectly when done correctly. Just re-read the instructions.

    You can simply select them, swipe down from the top and select Hide. That simple. They'll be in your memory, but won't show up in the gallery.

    If you'll take my advice:

    !!!Do NOT create that .nomedia file. Never. Ever. Bad idea. !!!

    I done it a while back because I didn't want my Whatsapp pictures appearing in my pictures app. Long story short: camera pictures stopped showing up there even though I'd saved the nomedia file to a different directory. It was an absolute nightmare managing to get rid of the file, since .* files are hidden in most file managers.

    The .nomedia files are visible when you connect the device to a computer or via Ghost Commander.
    It isn't a big deal.

    It was a nightmare finding it for me, which is why I'm sharing this.

    Or you can install some file hiding app (like private suite pro) if hiding stuff is what you are looking for.
