I was storing cached images in shared/downloads/myappname but they appeared in Gallery app.
So I stored them in tmp/ but it looks like they are disappearing after app restart.
Then I moved them int data/ which looks OK but I can't use them in MediaPlayer as NowPlaying icon.
What is best place where to store cached images from internet that I want to share with other apps?
Is there any way how to programatically exclude some pictures from Gallery app?
Solved! Go to Solution.

If I'm not mistaken, the misc folder is excluded.
Files or folders starting with a dot should be skipped, as the convention on QNX is to hide those files/folders from the user. Not sure if the media indexer adheres to this.
You could also try placing a .metadata_never_index or .noindex file in the folder containing your images (note the dot at the start)
