Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

I found oddness with the BBKey menu Hide also...kept just exiting the app back to homescreen. But, use the Properties of the file and you will always be able to hide or unhide...and turn on Show Hidden (from Explore) to show those you've previously hidden.

Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

ok thanks...

looks like

you selcet a photo, menu> hide it

then iot throws you out to desctop..

then you open "media" agai and you are on selected photo that it was hidsen.

you go to bb meny,properties tick on "removable  hidden"= photo is disappeared..

 

then you to un hide it permantly you have to go to media then BB menu>explore>media card>bb> show hidden

 

now you see the hidden photos selcted though..not permantly unhidden yet. to permently unhide the phot you go one by one on the photo,only highlight it >bb men> properties>untick "removable hidden"

 

 

THEY COULD EASILY HAVE A "HIDE" SELECTION!

AND THEN TO UNHIDE PHOTOS HAVE "UNHIDE" +PASSWORD!

**bleep** WHY IS IT SO DIFFICULT! THIS IS SO BAD!

Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

Sorry, but all "Why" questions are outside of my jurisdiction.

 

Personally, the only thing I use the Photo app for is to simply view photos as a slideshow. To manage the actual files, I use either the Explore app or (more often) directly tether and manage as a Windows drive letter via USB. Plus, I've never seen the utility of hiding anything on my BB. It's my BB.

Re: "hide" photos-where arr they??

My BB doesn't give me the explore button or option....how can I find my hidden photos?
